A Belgian legislator, Ben Weyts (N-VA), will introduce a bill making each of the 3 community holidays (July 11, September 27, and November 15) into fully-paid public holidays in their respective community.

According to De Standaard and Het Nieuwsblad many of the employers' associations would support such a move. Currently, these 3 dates are observed regionally only by civil servants.
