Trade union seeks urgent court interdict against Telkom over job losses

Tuesday 25 August 2020 | 11:19 CET | News
South Africa's Communication Workers Union (CWU) has launched an urgent court application to interdict Telkom from implementing a new organisational structure until it complies with a "fair labour process", ITWeb reports. The trade union claims 200 more jobs will be lost if the plan is executed in its current form, worsening the unemployment crisis in the country. This year alone, Telkom has made 2,000 people redundant, and the CWU is accusing it of violating labour rules to continue sacking people.
