The European Commission today proposed to provide Italy with €2.6 million from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to help 1,010 workers made redundant by De Tomaso Automobili S.p.A, an Italian manufacturer of high-end luxury cars, with their re-integration into the labour market.

The total estimated cost of the package is approximately €5.2 million, of which the EGF would provide around half.

The package

The package is designed to help the workers by offering them career advice, outplacement and job-search assistance, vocational training and skills upgrades, entrepreneurship promotion and contribution to business start-up, hiring benefits, job-search allowances and contributions towards special expenses such as contributions for carers of dependent persons and contributions to commuting expenses.

Next steps

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