Telkom denies it plans almost to halve its workforce

Tuesday 8 July 2014 | 10:41 CET | News
Fixed line operator Telkom has dismissed speculation by the South African Communications Union that it will be sacking 9,500 of its 19,000 employees, saying that it is not targeting a specific number of redundancies. According to Bloomberg, SACU claimed that Telkom would be starting the process to cut its workforce in half within the next six months. The union threatened to take Telkom to court over the matter but the company has outright dismissed the claim.
