AMSTERDAM: Tata Steel factory workers went on strike for the second time in three days on Sunday to protest planned job cuts in the Netherlands, delaying a shipment to Britain, labour union FNV said.

Workers have held work stoppages since June 10, but the actions were suspended last week while talks were held with Tata Steel Europe's management.

Those talks failed to reach an agreement. Tata's managing board said it needed more time to consider the union's demands that no jobs be cut until October 2026 and plans to further integrate Tata's Dutch and British activities be scrapped. Employees were stopping work for eight hours on Sunday, a statement said, after a strike on Friday night.

A shipment of steel to Camden, England, will not be loaded as a result and the ship will remain at the dock in IJmuiden.
