Coop to give staff payrise

Coop to give staff payrise

Coop staff are celebrating – mainly. The retail chain has agreed with unions to give most workers a rise of half a percent.

The company says it is doing this despite a difficult trading year. It also points out they have gone through the year without any redundancies.

While the unions are broadly happy with the plan – they do say it should have been done earlier and the cost of living is climbing which hits the lower paid particularly hard.
