Netherlands Times reported that Tata Steel Netherlands vice chairman Mr Hans van den Berg will step into the shoes of former chairman Mr Theo Henrar as the company's new chief. Mr Van den Berg has been involved with Tata Steel in various capacities for thirty years and was among the disgruntled workers who blocked the gates to blast furnace grounds to protest Henrar's dismissal on Tuesday morning. Tata Steel Netherlands's Central Works Council chairman Mr Frits van Wieringen told the newspaper De Telegraaf. "A logical choice. The management consisted of three people, but now that Theo Henrar has been fired, Van den Berg will be his successor. We now have to wait until a new board member is appointed."

The new appointment follows after months of controversy between Tata Steel Netherlands and Tata Steel's other international subsidiaries, after threats of mass layoffs at the IJmuiden steel plant racked the company in November last year. While the decision to lay off employees was later reversed, Mr Henrar's abrupt departure on May 18 has sparked fresh concern from his loyal former employees and from unions, who see the move as placing job security in increasing jeopardy, especially in light of the precariousness caused by the Covid-19 health crisis
