Survey to help Telstra job fight

THE Northern Rivers Social Development Council is calling on residents in the area to fill out a survey on the impact of Telstra call centre closures in Lismore and Grafton.

"We need as many people, businesses and organisations to fill this survey out as possible," an NRSDC spokesperson said.

"Please complete the survey and forward the survey link to other people and organisations within the region.

"Information gathered from the survey will be used to help inform the debate around the future of Telstra in the Northern Rivers, to help our community to lobby for the jobs to stay in the region, and to come up with other solutions.

The survey will also identify if there is a critical mass of people and organisations willing to back a local provider, the NRSDC said.

Participation in the survey will take no more than five minutes and is confidential.
