GMB Trade Union - Asda worst paying of 'big four' once again

Other companies try to protect staff from cost of living crisis, but not Asda

Asda is once again the worst paying of the ‘big four’ supermarkets after Tesco bumped up wages today

Basic pay for Asda retail workers remains at £10.10 per hour. 

Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Aldi have all increased wages recently to help workers cope with the cost of living crisis. 

Basic hourly pay rates for retail staff at the ‘big four’ supermarkets 

Aldi £10:50 

Sainsburys £10:25 

Tesco £10:30 

Asda £10:10 

Meanwhile, Asda has cancelled a driver premium payment which was meant to last until December, leaving Asda delivery drivers at an industry low. 

Nadine Houghton, GMB National Officer, said: 

“It should be a source of massive shame for Asda they are now the worst paying of the big four. 

“Only last week Asda refused a meeting with GMB representatives to discuss the important issue of pay.  

“While other companies are trying to protect hard-working employees from the cost of living crisis, Asda seems happy to sit back while its workers struggle. 

“It’s time for Asda’s new owners to focus on investing in staff, instead of further debt leveraging Asda to expand their empire.”
