CenturyLink to trim workforce by 175 jobs, cuts holiday bonuses

Telecommunications

CenturyLink is trimming its workforce by approximately 175 jobs in locations across the 16 states that it serves, a spokesman confirmed this morning.

The same spokesman said that CenturyLink decided to discontinue holiday bonuses for its employees.

"As part of CenturyLink’s ongoing effort to remain cost-competitive and align resources with customer demand, we will offer voluntary separations to select union-represented field operations employees," the spokesman wrote.

The nation's third-largest fixed-line operator had 46,000 employees at the end of September.

Citing the merger with Level 3 and the implementation of automation across its network as key factors, CenturyLink cut about 1,000 employees from its workforce back in May.
