Australia Tables ACT Public Holiday Change Bill
 
(Posted on Friday, October 16, 2009)

The Minister for Industrial Relations of Australia's ACT territory, John Hargreaves, has tabled "The Holidays (Family and Community Day) Amendment Bill 2009" which will change the date of the Family and Community Day public holiday.

This confirms last summer's announcement (31-Aug-2009) that the ACT's Holidays Act 1958 would be amended to move the date of the Family and Community Day public holiday to the first week of the September/October school holidays.

This public holiday was declared by the ACT Stanhope Labor Government after the traditional Union Picnic Day was axed under the previous federal government's WorkChoices laws (30-Jul-2007 and 05-Apr-2007).

For 2008 and 2009, the Family and Community Day public holiday's observance is the same as that of the Victoria State Melbourne Cup public holiday (the first Tuesday in November).
