Aldi warehouse workers in Swindon are set to enjoy increased pay rates from early next month.

Following two pay increases for hourly-paid warehouse colleagues in 2022, this further pay rise represents an up to 20 per cent increase on their pay since this time last year.

The new wage system for the Wiltshire workers comes into action on Wednesday, February 1, 2023.

Most distribution centre roles are warehouse selectors and this increase means these colleagues in Swindon will receive a new minimum rate of £13.59 an hour – up from £12.66 at the start of 2022.

The move follows Aldi’s recent pay review for Store Assistants which came into effect this month and saw Aldi offer starting pay of £11.00 an hour nationally, rising to £11.90, and £12.45 rising to £12.75, within the M25.

Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer of Aldi UK and Ireland, 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.”
