Bolivia's Minister of Labour, Daniel Santalla, has announced that the Bolivian Cabinet of Ministers had approved a decree which declares Monday, April 30, 2012, as a non-working public holiday throughout Bolivia ("feriado con suspensión de actividades públicas y privadas en todo el territorio del Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia"), to link the coming weekend with the annual Labour Day non-working public holiday.

As per the aforementioned "Decreto Supremo 1210" released by the Bolivian Ministerio de Trabajo, Empleo y Previsión Social, the practice of declaring bridge public holidays around the annual Labour Day public holiday (2011-04-15), though not systematically (2010-04-27 and 2007-04-26), is now enshrined for the Mondays before Labour Day ("El día lunes inmediato anterior al 1º de mayo, en caso de que esta fecha sea en día martes") and the Friday after Labour Day ("El día viernes inmediato posterior al 1ª de mayo, en caso de que esta fecha sea en día jueves").
