Aldi has agreed to pay its staff a Living Wage rate of at least €11.70 an hour.
The new rate comes into effect on 1st February 2018 and represents a 20c increase on the entry-level pay for Aldi Store Assistants, Stock Assistants and Caretakers.
The supermarket chain says some of its Irish staff already earn up to €14 an hour.
Giles Hurley, Group Managing Director, Aldi Ireland, said the company is rewarding workers without whose dedication "day in, day out, we would be unable to provide customers with the lowest grocery prices in Ireland.
Aldi is continuing to open more stores across Dublin and the rest of Ireland, as well as spending €60m in revamping and refurbishing its existing stores.
