June 24 (Bloomberg) -- Vivendi SA’s SFR mobile-phone unit will announce a cost-reduction plan to employees on July 3 and plans to cut spending by 1 billion euros ($1.3 billion), Le Journal du Dimanche reported, citing unidentified people.

The company plans to trim costs by about 800 million euros and curb network spending by 200 million euros, the newspaper said. Unions expect about 1,000 job cuts, mainly in commercial and retail services, according to the JDD.

SFR has asked suppliers of call-center services such as Teleperformance SA for a 10 percent to 25 percent cost reduction, according to the newspaper.
