BALTIMORE, May 19, 2021 – Today, Under Armour announced up to a 50% increase in its minimum pay rate for hourly teammates in the United States and Canada. Hourly rates will increase from a minimum of $10 per hour to $15 per hour ($15.25 Canadian dollars per hour in Canada), which will go into effect on June 6. As a result, more than 8,000 part-time and full-time teammates – approximately 90% of the Retail and Distribution House (DH) workforce – will see a compensation increase.
“Our Retail and Distribution House teammates are the backbone of our business, and play an essential role in our ability to serve our Focused Performers,” said Patrik Frisk, President and CEO of Under Armour. “We are committed to doing the right thing, and at the center of our commitment is ensuring our teammates feel valued and appreciated.”
Under Armour currently has more than 3,000 open roles in retail locations and distribution houses, some of which are seasonal and include Sales Teammates, Store Managers and Stock Teammates. All of these roles will start at a minimum of $15 per hour in June.
“At Under Armour, direct-to-consumer is one of our biggest growth opportunities and an area that I am proud to oversee,” said Stephanie Pugliese, President of the Americas at Under Armour.
“We’re delighted to be able to raise our minimum pay rate and acknowledge the hard work of our frontline teammates in retail and warehouse, particularly over the past year.”
