More than 60 Visionstream employees could be affected as the telecommunications and IT services company continues to trim its workforce, according to the Communications Workers Union (CWU).

The CWU revealed on 7 April that it had been notified by Visionstream that the company plans to cut more than 60 positions from its field services delivery workforce, as current contracts expire and work volumes decline simultaneously.

The union said those affected will be both direct employees and labor hire workers. In addition, around 22 jobs that are currently covered by either the Visionstream Field Workforce Agreement or the Silica Communications Agreement are at risk.

A further 17 non-EA and 27 labor hire jobs are also likely to go.

According to the CWU, Visionstream and Silica failed to win National Broadband Network (NBN) work when the Operations and Maintenance Master Agreements (OMMA) were announced in December 2015, with current contracts for FTTN build expiring in June.
