staff restructuring

Network operations: consultations continue

The CWU remains in consultation with Telstra over the proposed job cuts in Field Service Delivery (FSD), Network Operations.  

While Telstra has notified us of its intention to proceed with the major company “transformation” announced in mid-June, no final decision has yet been made in relation to FSD where a total of 145 redundancies is proposed.

In late June, the CWU wrote to Telstra requesting detailed information about current and future operations in Field Service Delivery, with a particular focus on areas where: 

  • Telstra was performing work under contract to NBN  
  • External contractors were being employed
  • FIFO employees were being used.

Telstra has provided details on NBN contracts but says that information on external contractors or on FIFO employees is not relevant as Telstra simply intends to keep using a mixture of work arrangements, as it does now.

The CWU’s view, of course, is that Telstra should not be engaging contractors in areas where it is making staff redundant or using the FIFO model to undermine local employment.

The CWU is currently reviewing the information that Telstra has provided prior to meeting again on these issues on Monday 17 July.
