The objective of this package of measures is to provide them with career guidance and accompany them in their job search, as well as to offer them opportunities that allow them to acquire new skills through professional training.
The measures will have an estimated cost of 3.4 million euros, of which 2 million will be covered by the FEAG, while the rest will be borne by the Xunta de Galicia, and it is expected that some 500 workers will benefit.
Spain requested the support of the Fund after the dismissal of 960 workers of auxiliary companies of the shipyards of Galicia between May 2019 and February 2020.
The FEAG finances the accompaniment and professional retraining of workers who have lost their jobs as a result of globalization or the economic crisis, but could also be mobilized in the event of massive final redundancies in the context of the current economic crisis resulting from the pandemic of COVID-19, Brussels recalled.
After the adoption of the proposal by the European Parliament (EP) and the Council, Galician workers will be able to benefit from the support measures co-financed by the FEAG.
