Ukraine Mulls May Public Holidays Shake-Up

The Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada, the unicameral parliament of the Ukraine, is considering the draft law No.4722 "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine (regarding the reduction of the number of public holidays and weekends)", which would remove the annual public holidays of May 1, 2 and 9 from the annual list of non-working public holidays of the Ukraine.

In the stead of the May 1, 2 and 9 annual Ukrainian public holidays that would be removed by the aforementioned draft law No.4722 from the annual list of non-working public holidays of the Ukraine, May 8 would be declared as a new, Day of Remembrance and Reconciliation, annual non-working public holiday in the Ukraine.

Recall that the last 2 public holidays added to the list of annual non-working public holiday in the Ukraine were: October 14, "the Day of Defender of Ukraine", passed as the draft law No.2187 "On making changes in Article 73 of the Code of Laws on Labour of Ukraine (as to establishing the holiday of the Day of Defender of Ukraine)" (06-Mar-2015, and the November 22, Freedom Day holiday (21-Nov-2005), though the latter was subsequently canceled (31-Dec-2011) by then Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych.

In any event, even if approved, the draft law No.4722 "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine (regarding the reduction of the number of public holidays and weekends)", which begins with the preamble "In Ukraine remains a problem of irrational number of days off, which is unacceptable in a difficult economic period which also coincides with the time of international armed conflict", would come too late to affect the previously-released list of non-working public holidays in the Ukraine for 2016, which was released last November (12-Nov-2015and 25-Sep-2015), by the Cabinet of Ministers of the Ukraine in the "Disposition number 1155 of November 11", and which specified the official list of 2016 non-working public holidays in the Ukraine, including additional one-off non-working public holidays in the Ukraine.
