Parliament approved on Thursday almost €20 million in EU job-seeking aid for workers recently made redundant in France and Greece.

EU aid worth €17.7 million has been approved to support 1,580 workers from Air France and two of its subsidiaries in 16 French regions, who lost their jobs because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The draft report by rapporteur Fabienne Keller (RENEW, FR) recommending that Parliament approve the aid was passed by 564 votes, 18 against and 16 abstentions. More information in the recent press release.

In Greece, MEPs signed off on €1.5 million in EU support for 206 workers made redundant from six companies producing household appliances in the Greek region of Attica, a sector deeply affected by the economic crisis, COVID-19, domestic supply shortages of electrical components, and high productions costs. The draft report by rapporteur Bogdan Rzonca (ECR, PL) recommending that Parliament approve the aid was passed by 564 votes, 26 against and 6 abstentions.

The aid from the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund for Displaced Workers (EGF) will finance advisory services, career guidance and business start-up training.
