Thursday 4 March 2021 | 10:01 CET | News
SFR's parent company Altice France has presented a strategic plan covering the next five years while starting negotiations with trade unions on a new wave of job cuts. The company intends to reduce its workforce with a voluntary redundancy programme targeting 11 percent of SFR's workforce during the current year. This represents 1,700 employees, 400 of them from the operator's retail stores. Meanwhile, the number of SFR shops is set to fall from 630 to 568 by 2022, in line with a reorganisation of retail activities unveiled in 2019.
