The European Commission has proposed to provide Belgium with € 570,945 from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to help 479 workers made redundant by Ford in Genk (Belgium) and its suppliers to find new jobs.

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

Belgium applied for support from the EGF following the redundancies of 512 workers of Ford-Werke GmbH (Ford Genk) and ten of its suppliers. These redundancies were the result of a rapid decline of the EU’s market share in the production of passenger cars at worldwide level.

The measures co-financed by the EGF would help the 479 workers facing the greatest difficulties in finding new jobs by providing them with:

  • job-search assistance,
  • active job-oriented guidance, and
  • a variety of retraining and vocational training.

The total estimated cost of the package is €1.14 million, of which the EGF would provide half.
