Cal­tex cuts 350 jobs

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

SOME 350 Cal­tex em­ploy­ees around Aus­tralia will lose their jobs over the next 12 months.

The move is part of a com­pany-wide cost and ef­fi­ciency re­view.

Th­ese re­dun­dan­cies fol­low the 300-plus po­si­tions that will be lost when Cal­tex’s Kur­nell re­fin­ery in Syd­ney com­pletes its con­ver­sion into an im­port ter­mi­nal in Oc­to­ber. The fuel sup­plier was un­will­ing to re­veal spe­cific re­gions in which the job cut­backs will take place, but said 150 mar­ket­ing po­si­tions, 120 cor­po­rate of­fice jobs and 70-80 op­er­a­tional and sup­ply work­ers will go.

The com­pany yes­ter­day re­ported a first-half net profit of $173 mil­lion, up 1% on the pre­vi­ous six months.
