Aldi hands shopworkers another pay rise to £11.40 per hour

Aldi has handed workers another pay increase to a minimum of £11.40 per hour.

The discount supermarket, which employs more than 40,000 UK staff, said that all store assistants will receive the new rate nationally from July 1.

Workers within the M25 will see their pay rise to £12.85 an hour.

It comes only two months after a pay increase came into force, which handed store assistants £11 an hour.

Aldi said the series of pay increases means that staff will be earning roughly 13% more than the same period last year.

The retailer said it has invested more than £100 million in colleague pay over the past 12 months, amid continued competition to secure and retain workers due to labour shortages.

Giles Hurley, chief executive officer of Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “We believe our colleagues are the best in the sector and we are committed to ensuring they are also the best paid.

“We are incredibly proud of every single member of Team Aldi and are pleased to become the first UK supermarket to pay a minimum of £11.40 per hour to all store assistants.”

The supermarket has also outlined plans to create more than 6,000 new jobs this year, adding to the 4,500 it created last year.

Aldi’s pay increase follows hikes by a raft of rivals including Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Lidl.
