Aldi increases pay for warehouse staff and boosts night premium payments
Aldi has increased the hourly rate of pay for thousands of people working in its regional distribution centres across the UK.
From September, all hourly paid staff members in warehouses will have received pay rises of up to 9% on their previous January 2022 hourly rates. The majority of distribution centre roles are for warehouse selectors who will qualify for a new minimum rate of £12.66 an hour.
In addition, all logistics staff working outside normal operating hours will see their night premium payments increase from 20% to 25% of their normal hourly rate.
Giles Hurley, chief executive of Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “This announcement recognises the amazing contribution our logistics colleagues make in serving communities across the country.
“We’re also pleased to be able to increase the night premium we pay to our many colleagues who work so hard to keep our stores well-stocked. Their outstanding efforts help ensure that our customers continue to have access to fresh affordable food, every single day.”
Aldi has more than 970 stores and 11 regional distribution centres across the UK.
