Aldi warehouse workers to get third pay rise in 12 months

Aldi

Aldi is giving around 7,000 warehouse workers a pay rise from February.

Warehouse workers paid by the hour received two rises in 2022, and this further increase means staff at the value grocer will be paid up to 20 percent more than at this time last year.

Warehouse selectors make up the majority of distribution centre jobs, and their starting hourly wage will increase to £13.18 from £11.48 in January 2022.

The action comes in response to Aldi's latest pay review for store assistants, which went into effect this month and saw Aldi offer starting pay of £11 per hour nationally, rising to £11.90, and £12.45 per hour, rising to £12.75, within the M25.

The only supermarket that provides paid breaks is Aldi, which adds an extra £871 to the average shop associate's yearly salary.

The new rates for warehouse employees and store associates go above the national real living wage of £10.90 recommended by the Living Wage Foundation.

Aldi UK and Ireland chief executive Giles Hurley said: “Just as we promise our customers that we will do all we can to support them, we are equally committed to supporting our amazing Aldi colleagues – as we remain the highest-paying supermarket in the UK.

“This announcement recognises the hard work and contribution our colleagues make in serving communities across the country and it’s down to them that we are able to ensure our customers can access fresh affordable food, every single day.”
