CWU to resist job losses at Telkom after the company announced plans to retrench 1000 workers.

The Communication Workers' Union (CWU) vowed on Thursday to resist job losses at Telkom after the company announced plans to retrench 1000 workers. "We will defend job losses. We want Telkom to engage us on what are the issues," CWU deputy president Clyde Mervin told reporters in Johannesburg. He said the union could share ideas with Telkom on how jobs could be saved.

"If today 1000 jobs are lost, tomorrow it could be worse."

"We will mobilise our members by making sure we have proper engagements with our structures of the union to ensure that it [retrenchment] becomes the last resort."

The union was informed that about 1000 employees in managerial ranks would be retrenched.
