Two-thirds of Boots staff are set to receive a pay rise of almost 6%, C+D has learned.
The multiple's 40,000 hourly-paid staff will receive an average pay increase of 5.8% from April, the health and beauty giant told C+D yesterday (February 2).
The pay rises will vary depending on the "type of role and location" of each staff member, it stressed.
Boots dispensing assistants will receive at least 20p extra per hour, while those taking on the newly-created pharmacy advisor role will receive an extra 50p per hour, it said.
The company announced a pay rise earlier this week, but did not reveal how much more staff would receive.
In the announcement, Boots also revealed plans to fund the pay rise by axing the half-day holiday it gives staff for Christmas shopping, as well as the £50 voucher it previously handed to employees with 100% attendance.
The multiple told C+D that the new higher pay rates for hourly-paid staff will "more than offset" the loss of these benefits.
