Tesco pay rise for its work­ers

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TESCO has agreed a pay in­crease of up to 3.1 per cent for its UK store staff.

The deal will af­fect 230,000 of the su­per­mar­ket gi­ant’s 320,000 UK em­ploy­ees, tak­ing the hourly rate of its shop work­ers to £7.62.

The move comes ahead of the April in­tro­duc­tion of the Govern­ment’s na­tional liv­ing wage, which will lift min­i­mum hourly pay to £7.20 for over-25s, from its cur­rent level of £6.50, and to at least £9 an hour by 2020.

Tesco said its pay in­crease – which comes into ef­fect on July 3 – will ap­ply to all work­ers re­gard­less of age who have worked at the busi­ness for more than nine months.
