The European Commission has today proposed to provide Italy with €1.1 million from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to help 480 workers made redundant by Jabil CM S.r.l and Anovo Italia S.p.A. - two manufacturers of electronic products for the ICT sector - with their re-integration into employment.

Italy applied for support from the EGF for 529 former workers of the two companies.

Among the redundant workers, 480 are expected to participate in the EGF co-financed measures. The package is designed to help the workers by offering them tutoring and career counselling, skills assessment, matching of skills and jobs, entrepreneurship promotion, and mentoring after reintegration in a new job.

The total estimated cost of the package is approximately €1.7 million, of which the EGF would provide €1.1 million.

Next steps

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