Gov't Helping Laid-off Tungsram Workers With Subsidized Training
The government is helping workers being made redundant by Tungsram with subsidized training in Budapest and the three counties affected by the lay-offs, state secretary of the Ministry of Technology and Industry Zsolt Kutnyánszky said on Tuesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The ministry is launching a HUF 500 million program offering personalized training adapted to local labor market demand in the capital and Zala, Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg and Hajdú-Bihar counties, he said.
Tungsram announced on April 27 that it would cease production of conventional lighting and lay off 1,600 workers by year-end.
