ASDA Workers Face Third Month of Wage Errors – GMB Union

Listen to this article

Workers at UK retailer Asda are facing a third month of wage errors as a consequence of “mismanagement” by TDR Capital says GMB Union.

Thousands of low paid retail and logistics workers have been paid incorrectly for the majority of 2024.

For those who have been overpaid, Asda has given them until just 28 May to agree a repayment or face potentially huge deductions from their June pay packet. 

The errors stem from TDR’s attempts to switch to a new payment system to save money, having deemed the previous system – used by former owners  Walmart – too expensive.

Nadine Houghton, GMB National Officer, comments: “We have had members who’ve resigned due to not being paid properly, members who have had to go off sick from work, who have been paid nothing month on month and who have been paid only to then have the money taken back off of them. It’s a farce.

“The cost of using the old Walmart systems has led to TDR Capital switching on to the new IT systems without making sure they are fit for purpose. 

“This is yet more evidence of cutting corners from TDR Capital and the only people that suffer are the hard working colleagues that make ASDA what it is.

“ASDA is refusing to show leniency in how they recoup over paid money.

“This is a blatant disregard for the stress and worry they have put on low paid workers who have had to worry about paying the bills and feeding their family when not being paid properly.”
