Tata Steel Netherlands’ employees gathered on the parking lot of FC Velsenoord in Velsen-Noord on Tuesday morning to protest against announced layoffs at the steel factory in IJmuiden. There is a lot of incomprehension among the Tata Steel employees about the mass layoffs. There are major concerns about the future of the factory, which is the largest employer in the IJmond region. The employees gathered to hear what managers of union FNV and the chairman of the company's Central Works Council have to say about their future.

Last month Tata Steel announced that 3 thousand jobs will be cut in Europe, including 1,600 at the IJmuiden factory. According to CEO Henrik Adam, the layoffs in the Netherlands are necessary because the Dutch steel factory is not operating as well as it could.
