Sunrise UPC has confirmed it will make 450 redundancies as part of its restructuring plan, representing 13.5% of its total workforce of 3,350.
In a statement, the merged telco and cablenet said it expects 150 redundancies in 2022. In addition, around 150 jobs will be reduced through attrition by the end of 2022.
Since its initial announcement in January, Sunrise UPC has been in discussions with employee representatives and the Syndicom trade union.
Those affected will receive professional support through an outplacement program.
In addition, Sunrise UPC is providing a fund of CHF 2.5 million for individual bridging measures, such as for individual cases of hardship or qualification measures.
