CenturyLink to lay off 2% of workforce

Friday 4 May 2018 | 08:48 CET | News
US operator CenturyLink has started laying off hundreds of employees in plans to reduce its workforce by around 2 percent following last year's merger with Level 3 Communications. The job cuts are in various divisions across the business, CenturyLink confirmed to the Denver Business Journal. The company did not disclose an exact number, but employment figures it reported earlier this year suggest a 2 percent cut would mean as many as 1,050 employees let go.
