Following pressure from GMB Union members who have been campaigning hard to get Asda bosses to deliver, from July, Asda retail workers will get a base rate pay of £10.10, up from £9.66 previously.
“It is fantastic news that people working in Asda stores will have more money in their pockets. It is what they deserve and urgently needed with the rising cost of living said Nadine Houghton, GMB National Officer.
“GMB members in stores across the country have been campaigning hard to get Asda bosses to deliver better pay. We’re glad they have listened.
“Retail workers, predominantly women, face the reality of living with low pay every day. Employers everywhere need to step up and properly reward these key workers who keep our high streets running.”
