Tesco staff to see pay rise to £10.10 an hour

Last year, Morrisons became the first UK supermarket to announce it would pay at least £10 an hour from April 2021, while Sainsbury's is the latest to pay shop workers at least £10 an hour. Jason Tarry, chief executive officer of Tesco UK & ROI, said employees were getting a "Well-deserved pay rise, more access to extra hours, and setting out a long-term commitment and investment in their careers at Tesco". "We will always offer any vacant hours to colleagues working fewer than 16 hours a week, before recruiting externally," it added. Usdaw national officer Daniel Adams said the union was "Pleased" to secure a pay deal that not only delivered "The highest hourly rate of pay in the sector", but also gave members a right to request a "Normal hours" contract and ensured a minimum 16-hour contract in the future. The National Living Wage, which applies to workers over the age of 23, has increased from £8.91 per hour, to £9.50 per hour from this month.
