SA’s third-biggest mobile network operator, Cell C, may cut more than a third of its staff in a bid to streamline its operations.

Cell C said that while the company has started a section 189 process, it is also looking at a number of ways to reskill some of the affected employees. Cell C said no final decision has been made on the retrenchments, and the consultation process with affected employees “is meant to obtain input for consideration before a final decision is made”.
