Poland - Government provides financial support to coal workers losing jobs - November 30, 2016

The government decided to initiate a coal mine closure process by providing financial support of about €1.8 billion to workers who might lose jobs due to closures. The EU sees these funds not as competition obstacles while requiring that mines receiving ‘closure aid’ must cease mining activities by the end of 2018. The state aid is meant to cover exceptional costs resulting from activities related to the closures, notably to mitigate social costs such as the costs of social welfare benefits or early retirement, costs incurred in safety or site rehabilitation for the production units subject to closure and must be based on an agreed closure plan.
