Mobile carrier Vodafone says no job cuts are
planned for its Australian staff, despite reported moves to sack
up to 6,000 employees globally.
The company has "absolutely no plans" to trim its Australian
workforce of over 1,400 permanent employees, a spokesperson for
the company told ZDNet Australia today via telephone.
Vodafone chief executive officer Arun Sarin will reportedly
soon announce significant losses.
Sarin will reportedly try to curtail the damage by cutting
costs, with up to 10 percent of Vodafone's 60,000-strong global
workforce to go, in addition to internal restructuring and the
outsourcing of some back-office systems.
