Australian Queensland Public Holidays Amended Again
 
(Posted on Monday, August 20, 2012)

The cabinet of the government of the Australian state of Queensland has given its approval to a further amendment of the Queensland state public holidays legislation which would see the return of the Queen's Birthday public holiday to its pre-2012 date, and a move of the Labor Day public holiday to October.

In June (12-Jun-2012), the Premier of Australia's State of Queensland, Campbell Newman, had announced that the existing state public holidays calendar needed to be re-examined, given the glut of public holidays in the first half of year, and that he personally backed a public holiday restructure that would see Queensland's Labour Day moved to October.

Last year (03-Dec-2011 and 05-Nov-2011) the former government of the Australian State of Queensland had amended the state public holidays law so that, beginning in 2012, the Queen's Birthday non-working public holiday would be moved from the 2nd Monday in June to the 1st Monday in October, while on the same occasion, a one-off public holiday for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee would be observed in June 2012 in Queensland.

The Queensland Chamber of Commerce and Industry had been complaining that Queensland now had 2 annual non-working public holidays dates that differ from the rest of Australia.
