Caterpillar: MEPs set to approve €4.6m in EU aid for 2,287 redundant workers 

2,287 workers made redundant by Caterpillar Solar in Gosselies (Belgium) and five suppliers are set to receive EU aid worth €4,621,616 to help find new jobs.

Due to major structural changes in world trade patterns, Caterpillar shut down its plant in the Belgian town of Gosselies (Hainaut province, Wallonia) last year.

The Parliament will vote on co-funding measures such as start-up grants, training and allowances for the 2,287 laid off workers by mobilising European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) aid.

Procedure:  Budgetary procedure


Vote: Thursday, 3 May
