The Bank of Greece, Greece's Central Bank, has released its annual list of the official non-working public holidays and bank holidays in Greece for the calendar year 2017.
As per custom (05-Jul-2015, 26-Jun-2014, 23-Jun-2013, 23-Apr-2013, 28-Jul-2012, 25-Jul-2011, 25-Jun-2010, 30-Jun-2009 and 21-Jul-2008), the aforementioned list of official Greek bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Greece for the calendar year 2017, omits public holidays that fall on a Saturday or Sunday, and which are not compensated under Greek labour law.
In addition, the aforementioned announcement specifies that "tthe observance of Monday, May 1st, 2017 as a holiday by the Bank of Greece will be subject to a decision by the Minister of Labour, Social Security and Social Solidarity declaring the said date a public holiday", this not being a pure formality, as the Greek government has, on past occasions (29-Mar-2016 and 24-Apr-2013).
