In what is the third modification this week, the Ministry of Labour of Nicaragua (MITRAB) has announced that it was rescinding ordinances JCHG-013-11-08 and JCHG-012-11-08, relative to the public holidays for the upcoming municipal elections. Friday, November 7, 2008, will be a public holiday for civil servants only, while Monday, November 10, 2008, will remain a full paid public holiday for all.

Under ordinance JCHG-012-11-08 of November 2 (see 2008-11-04) the 3 days of Friday, Saturday, Monday, November, 7, 8, and 10, would have been public holidays for both the private and public sector, with full pay.

The later ordinance JCHG-013-11-08 (2008-11-05) did not change the non-working status of any of the 3 days, but did make the November 7th and 8th, non-working days to be compensated by yearly vacation.
