(Scroll down for video) Several Air France managers in Paris, faced off against angry protesters after announcing job cuts.

Several hundred workers stormed the company’s headquarters after the layoffs were announced on Monday.

Human resources manager Xavier Broseta was seen with a torn shirt and a tie hanging from his neck as he fought through the crowd of angry workers while trying to escape.

He was pushed over a fence before managing to escape from the crowd.

CEO Frederic Gagey said that the job cuts were needed after he failed to convince the pilots to accept a cost-cutting measure earlier this year.

Air France confirmed that it plans to cut 2,900 jobs and remove 14 airplanes from its fleet. The airline also plans to cancel its order for Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
