EGF pays €35 mn to help redundant textile workers in Italy

16
Dec '08
Mr Vladimír Špidla, EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs & Equal Opportunities
The European Commission has made four payments to Italy from the European Globalisation adjustment Fund (EGF). The total of € 35.16 million will help almost 6 000 workers in the textile sector back into employment.

These workers were made redundant in mainly small businesses located in Sardinia, Piedmont, Lombardy and Tuscany. The redundancies follow the general shift of clothing and accessories production in the European Union towards lower-cost non-EU countries. The payment follows approval by the Budgetary Authority (the European Parliament and the Council) on 19 November.

Vladimír Špidla, EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities said: "These payments, the biggest from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund so far, benefit workers from more than 800 businesses and show that the EGF can provide support to workers from small and medium sized enterprises as well as those from large companies. These funds are helping almost 6000 workers, who have lost their jobs as a result of globalisation, to find their way back into work more easily and rapidly".

The Italian applications, approved by the Commission in September 2008 cover 5,955 dismissals: 1,044 in Sardinia (in 5 enterprises), 1,537 in Piedmont (in 202 enterprises), 1,816 redundancies in Lombardy (in 190 enterprises) and 1,558 in Tuscany (in 461 enterprises).

The redundancies follow the general shift of clothing and accessories production in the European Union towards lower-cost non-EU countries and the increase of imports of cheap textiles from low-wage economies, largely in Asia.

The EGF is co-financing active labour market policy measures, specific to the needs of the workers in each of the four affected regions, such as occupational guidance, job search assistance and job search allowances, entrepreneurship promotion, training vouchers and incentives for companies recruiting redundant workers.
