Tank storage group Odfjell to sack 189 staff in the Netherlands

Bulk chemicals storage group Odfjell has asked the courts for permission to sack 189 workers in the Netherlands, or more than half its local personnel, the company confirmed to the Financieeel Dagblad on Thursday.

The company says the move is necessary to save the Dutch operations from bankruptcy.
According to local broadcaster RTV Rijnmond, Odfjell says in its application to sack staff that the move is necessary because all its main clients have cancelled their contracts.
This follows the decision to shut down the company’s storage tank operations in Rotterdam because health and safety rules were being broken.
