On 9 June 2010, the EGF Managing Authority submitted an application to the EGF in respect of certain workers made redundant in the construction sector. The initial application was subsequently divided into three applications covering workers in three specific sub-sectors of the construction industry. These three applications were submitted to the EGF on 22 February 2011.
