The European Commission has proposed to provide Spain with €700,000 from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to help 400 workers made redundant in the carpentry and joinery sector in the Castilla y León region to find new jobs.

The proposal now goes to the European Parliament and the EU's Council of Ministers for approval.

Spain applied for support from the EGF following the dismissal of 587 workers in three businesses operating in the joinery and carpentry sector in the region of Castilla y León. The workers primarily make doors and window frames used in the construction of buildings. 

These dismissals were the result of the shrinking market for wooden doors and window frames worldwide and the decline in the volume of exports of these goods from Spain during the past years.

The measures co-financed by the EGF would help the 400 workers facing the greatest difficulties in finding new jobs by providing them with

  • intensive job-search assistance,
  • counselling and guidance,
  • general training and re-training,
  • vocational training,
  • promotion of entrepreneurship and
  • a variety of allowances and incentives.

The total estimated cost of the package is €1.4 million, of which the EGF would provide half.
