The European Commission has today proposed to provide Denmark with €1.3m from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to help 153 workers made redundant by Flextronics International Denmark A/S, a provider of design and electronic manufacturing services for original electronic equipment manufacturers.
The proposal now goes to the European Parliament and the EU's Council of Ministers for their approval.
The Danish application relates to 303 redundancies from Flextronics International Denmark A/S, a provider of design and electronics manufacturing services for original electronic equipment manufacturers. Of the total number of redundant workers, 153 with the biggest difficulties for their re-integration into the labour market would benefit from measures backed by the EGF.
The package aims to help the workers by offering them assessment of acquired competences and qualifications; vocational training, technical courses and education activities which will be tailor-made to suit the skills of the workers; individual outplacement and entrepreneurship promotion; as well as the necessary subsistence allowances. These measures have been carefully designed to help the workers find jobs in sectors with a promising future.
The total estimated cost of the package is approximately €2 million, towards which the EGF would provide €1.3 million.
