Telstra jobs purge must be stopped


Telstra’s announcement of the largest jobs purge in Australian corporate history is unacceptable.

The destruction of 8,000 skilled white and blue collar jobs is a national jobs emergency that can not be allowed to proceed.

Cuts of this scale will severely undermine Telstra’s capacity to deliver quality services to its customers, particularly those in rural and regional communities.

It also sends a terrible message more broadly that workers in a high-tech, digital business like Telstra can be thrown on the scrap-heap so easily.

The federal government must urgently intervene in this issue to retain worker confidence in the economy and use its power as a major consumer of telecommunications services to maximise pressure to protect these jobs.
