European Commission proposes over €1.4 million from Globalisation Adjustment Fund to help former workers from Saint-Gobain Sekurit Benelux in Belgium and Zakłady Chemiczne Zachem in Poland

The European Commission has proposed to provide Belgium with € 1.3 million from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund to help 257 former workers of Saint-Gobain Sekurit Benelux to find new jobs. The amount proposed for Poland is €115,205 to help 50 former workers of Zakłady Chemiczne Zachem and two of its suppliers and downstream producers to find new jobs. Marianne Thyssen, EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility commented:

“Many workers in the motor industries and chemical industry are experiencing hardship and EU solidarity to help them to manage these difficult transitions is therefore important. I’m confident that today’s decision will help to make the transition to new jobs easier for 307 people and also to set up their own businesses.”
