Morrisons announces a pay increase to at least £10 an hour.

This is great news for staff who are working so hard at the Hampden Park store.

David Potts, chief executive officer at Morrisons, said: “It’s great to be able to say that in the UK from April this year, if you work at Morrisons supermarkets, you will earn at least £10 an hour.

“It’s a symbolic and important milestone that represents another step in rewarding the incredibly important work that our colleagues do up and down the country.

“Over the last year we have seen renewed and widespread appreciation in the UK for our colleagues who have had an incredibly tough 2020, working tirelessly so Britain could eat well and shop safely throughout the pandemic.

“Morrisons colleagues have earned their status as key workers, and this pay increase, many times over.”

It will be the first UK supermarket group to secure workers a £10 minimum rate when the pay deal starts in April.
