US Virgin Islands Propose Public Sector Holidays Reductions

The Governor of the British Virgin Islands, John de Jongh Jr., will have his Austerity Measures Act debated in the BVI Senate on Thursday.

Part of the Governor's measures include implementing three unpaid public sector holidays for government workers during 2011 and 2012: Transfer Day; Holy Thursday; and December 26. The Act would also remove Sundays from the list of legal holidays in the territory of the British Virgin Islands.

Interestingly enough, this public holidays belt-tightening follows last week's announcement (18-Mar-2011) that the Governor of the British Virgin Islands, after consultation with the Cabinet, had approved a one-off public holiday on Friday, April 29, 2011, to coincide with the upcoming UK royal wedding.
