Two unions representing some of Telkom SA’s workers said on Tuesday they would take the South African landline provider to court over possible retrenchments. The South Africa Communications Union (SACU) said it believed Telkom was about to let go of about 9,000 of its 19,000 employees over the next six months, a claim the company said was untrue. We intend going to court on the issue of the company not consulting with us,” said Karriem Abrahams, SACU general secretary. Telkom dismissed SACU’s claims as speculation and said it was “not targeting specific numbers of individuals.” The company has said it plans to cut out some layers of management but has given no target numbers.
