The Congress of South African
Trade Unions in the North West
province said it is disappointed that the state enterprise Telkom has engaged
in plans to restructure its operations in a bid to reduce operating costs.
says the restructuring will come with a lot of job losses, with thousands of
workers facing retrenchments and, cannot be allowed as it will add to the
triple challenges of unemployment, poverty and inequality.
Cosatu Provincial Secretary Solly Phetoe says
it will be unfair for the department of Eskom to do that on the workers because
the senior managers did play a role in line of the corrupt activities that have
taken place in Eskom.
Pheteo said we think that Telkom
through the Ministry of Telecommunications are not resolving this issue, what
they are doing is rushing into restructuring and there is no restructuring that
can be done without retrenching workers.
