Former staff at the Fiat factory in Tychy are to benefit from  a 10 million złoty hardship fund to help them find new jobs.

The Italian motor company announced in December that it would cut 1,450 jobs at the Tychy plant. Many of the workers were from Śląsk, and staff at smaller companies supplying Fiat were also affected.

In all, people in eight towns and cities around the region will get support. They include Tychy, Jaworzno, Pszczyna, Sosnowiec, Mysłowice, Mikołów, Bielsko-Biała and Częstochowa. The employment office in Katowice has confirmed that 777 applications for assistance have already been approved.

Cash will be available to fund training, job search and business start-up projects. The money has come from the Ministry of Work’s reserve fund.
