The European Commission proposed to help 450 displaced workers in the financial services with 1,2 million euro from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF)

Text:

Following the dismissal of many workers, the Netherlands demanded support from the Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) in order to help some of them. In particular, the most disadvantaged will be helped in their transition to new jobs, to find new opportunities and to adapt their skills and will receive training and entrepreneurship support. The measures also include the set-up of a mobility pool, which offers temporary jobs for job seekers. The proposal now needs to be approved by the European Parliament and Council.
