Komisja Europejska proponuje 1,5 mln euro dotacji dla 138 pracowników upadającej firmy jubilerskiej w Irlandi
The European Commission has proposed to provide Ireland with €1.5 million from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to help 138 former workers of the jewellery firm Andersen Ireland Limited to find new jobs.
The money would also help 138 young people not in employment, education or training (NEETs) to find job opportunities, a possibility offered by the new EGF Regulation.
The proposal now goes to the European Parliament and the EU’s Council of Ministers for approval.
Ireland applied for support from the EGF following the dismissal of 171 workers in Andersen Ireland Limited, as a result of increased competition from fashion jewellery manufacturers elsewhere in the world.
The measures co-financed by the EGF would help the 138 workers facing the greatest difficulties and an equal number of NEETs to find jobs.
They will receive
- occupational guidance and career planning assistance,
- enterprise and self-employment supports,
- second and third level education programmes,
- training grants and
- income supports.
The total estimated cost of the package is €2.5 million, of which the EGF would provide €1.5 million
