Telstra workers meeting to discuss job cuts

The Communications Electrical and Plumbing Union (CEPU) has organised a meeting today for Telstra workers to discuss how they will respond to planned job cuts.

CEPU organiser Shane Murphy said staff were disgusted with the proposed cuts and labelled them unjustified.

Martin said the cuts have been revealed at a time when staff are working continuous overtime. The union plans to challenge Telstra in the Australian Industrial Relations Commission, Martin sazid.

Telstra revealed to a Senate committee last month that it would cut 3000 jobs next financial year to boost productivity.

However, Telstra managing director of regulatory, corporate and human relations, Bill Scales, has since rejected the figure claiming there will be cuts but no specific numbers are planned.
