Morrisons to be first UK supermarket to pay minimum £10 an hour

Retail trade union Usdaw negotiated the £10 per hour basic rate which is 50p an hour above the voluntary Living Wage Foundation rate. "The new consolidated hourly rate is now the leading rate of the major supermarkets," said Joanne McGuinness, Usdaw national officer. Morrisons said for the majority of its workers the pay increase will be approximately 9%. Part of the increase will result from changing the company's annual bonus scheme from a discretionary yearly payment into a guaranteed amount in workers' hourly rates. In addition to the hourly pay increase, Morrisons will pay a higher London weighting. Rates for inner London will be 85p and for outer London 60p per hour, up from 75p in inner London and 50p in outer London.
