    Sainsbury's tweaks pay proposals after staff pressure

    Sainsbury's, Britain's second largest supermarket group, has bowed to pressure from employees and trade unions by changing some of the pay proposals it detailed in March as part of a move to simplify the company's wage structure. Sainsbury's said on Thursday that following a consultation process with staff representatives and unions it had agreed to increase unsociable hour premium payments, extend location pay supplements to staff working in all outer London areas rather than just inner London, and raise online driver payments. It said the amendments would come at a cost to the business of over 10 million pounds, in addition to the 100 million pounds it said the proposals would cost in March.

    Walmart's Sale Of Asda To Sainsbury's Reflects A Refocusing Of International Operations

    This week, Walmart announced that it will merge its UK operation, Asda, with British grocery rival Sainsbury’s. Walmart will hold a 42% stake in the new company, but, in practice, this marks its retreat from the UK market in the face of fierce competition from discounters Aldi and Lidl. The move apparently also reflects a refocusing of Walmart’s global operations under its new International CEO, Judith McKenna, who was appointed in January.

    Battle lines drawn in £7.3 billion Sainsbury's-Asda deal

    If Sainsbury's is to succeed in its $10 billion (7.3 billion pound) bid for Walmart's Asda and become Britain's largest supermarket it will have to persuade regulators that changes in the way people shop mean previous anti-trust rulings no longer apply. Britain's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has said it is likely to review the biggest deal in the sector for 15 years. Competition lawyers say Sainsbury's and Asda face an uphill battle to get the bid passed without having to sell off so many stores that it removes the rationale for the deal.
