Sky Italia to reduce workforce by 25% over 4 years - unions

Monday 12 April 2021 | 15:39 CET | News
Italian pay-TV broadcaster Sky is planning to cut its total workforce by 25 percent under a 4-year transformation plan, according to a joint statement released by the unions Slc Cgil, Fistel Cisl and Uilcom. The reduction is expected to save Sky around EUR 300 million, cutting its total workforce of 11,000 (including 6,000 external employees) by around 3,000 jobs by 2024, said the unions, adding that the move comes in response to aggressive competition and the country's ongoing economic crisis.
