Telstra to axe 8,000 jobs, create network company under new strategy plan

The changes form a 3-year plan building on the strategic investments announced by Telstra in 2016. A consequence of the plan is an expected net reduction in employee and contractor numbers of 8,000, including removing one in four executive and middle management roles to flatten the Telstra structure.
