Workers of Tungsram Operations who are being made redundant due to downsizing have the chance to participate in training subsidised by the government, a ministry of technology and industry (TIM) official said on Tuesday.
Tungsram announced in April it was terminating the production of traditional lighting products and would lay off 1,600 employees in the counties of Zala, Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg and Hajdú-Bihar, as well as in the capital, by the end of the year.
TIM is helping all such employees to get back to work as soon as possible, Zsolt Kutnyánszky, the state secretary for industry and the labour market, said in a statement.
