The Portuguese Government's amendments to the Labour Code to increase competitivity, in part by cancelling 4 annual non-working public holidays, takes effect today.

Last spring (09-May-2012), and after much hesitation and debate (15-Oct-2011, 03-Jul-2011, 01-Dec-2011, 18-Jan-2012, 12-Mar-2012 and 14-Nov-2011), a quadripartite agreement was reached to cancel the following annual Portuguese non-working public holidays: Corpo de Deus (Corpus Cristi), Implantação da República (October 5), Todos os Santos (November 1), and Restauração da independência (December 1st).

These will be canceled for 5 years (2013-2017) and at the end of that period the issue will be revisited ("A suspensão de quatro feriados, concretizada esta terça-feira, com o anúncio do acordo entre o Governo português e a Santa Sé, será reavaliada ao fim de cinco anos").
