Telkom announces further job cuts

18 Aug 2008

Telkom Kenya has angered unions over plans to lay off more workers, Business Daily reports. The firm, which last week relaunched its operations under the Orange name to reflect majority owner France Telecom’s international brand, says it will reduce its workforce by between 300 and 500 in the coming months. Though the reduction will be made via voluntary redundancies, unions are protesting against the move which they claim goes against an agreement made when Telkom axed 14,000 workers as part of a major restructuring prior to its part-privatisation.
