Distribution and store staff working for Aldi throughout the country will receive a 10% bonus in November, which will be paid in December ahead of the Christmas period.

Aldi said the bonus was a thank you to its “amazing colleagues” and a recognition of the effort they have made to help keep the nation fed during an unprecedented year.

The move comes after Tesco announced a similar 10% Christmas bonus for staff on Monday, as well as an increase in the staff shopping discount from 10% to 20%.

Commenting on the announcement of the bonus, Niall O’Connor, Aldi Ireland Group Managing Director said: “This year has been a difficult one for so many and our colleagues have worked tirelessly to ensure the nation continues to have access to high quality affordable food.

“This bonus is a gesture of our appreciation for our amazing Aldi colleagues who have shown incredible resilience and dedication throughout 2020.”
