South Africa’s third-largest mobile operator, Cell C, could face legal action in a bid to stop further retrenchments, trade union Solidarity said on Thursday.
Some 150 Cell C employees could lose their jobs as the company looks to streamline its business model.
Last week, one worker committed suicide after receiving a retrenchment notice.
Solidarity spokesperson Marius Croucamp said the man worked in senior management for over 10 years.
"The process [of retrenchments] should be completely stopped."
Cell C was not available for comment.
