Tesco staff to see pay increase to £7.62 an hour

Tesco is to give its store staff a pay increase of up to 3.1% to take the hourly rate of pay for established staff to £7.62 per hour.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Tesco staff to see pay increase to £7.62 an hour

The two year deal includes a rise in the base rate of pay for all store staff and will mean established staff will receive  more than the Government’s new National Living Wage of £7.20 per hour.

Tesco said staff will also continue to receive benefits such as a pension, colleague discount and a 5% turnaround bonus. The pay increase will come into effect on 3 July 2016 and will apply to staff of all ages.

As part of the package, Tesco has also introduced what it described as a simpler and fairer approach to premium payments. All staff will receive time and a half for Sunday and bank holiday shifts from July this year.

Any staff members negatively impacted by the changes will be supported with a lump sum transition payment worth 18 months of the difference in pay.

Matt Davies, Tesco UK and Republic of Ireland chief executive, said: “We’ve spent a lot of time working with Usdaw and colleague representatives to understand what’s important to colleagues. Together, we’ve agreed one of the highest pay and benefits packages in retail for store colleagues, and introduced a simpler and fairer pay structure, including one approach to premium payments.

“As well as an increase in pay which puts our hourly rate well above the Government’s National Living Wage, we remain absolutely committed to rewarding our colleagues with a pay and benefits package they really value, including a pension, colleague discount and 5% turnaround bonus.”
