Telkom South Africa proceeds with job cuts after court victory

Monday 16 March 2020 | 10:49 CET | News
Telkom South Africa says it is proceeding to offer voluntary severance packages and voluntary early retirement packages to employees, as an alternative to possible redundancies, after its court success against trade unions. The Communication Workers Union (CWU) had approached the labour court, trying to prevent Telkom from implementing a plan to cut at least 20 percent of its workforce. In January, Telkom announced that 3,000 jobs would be cut at the company.
