The Government of Gibraltar has gazetted the recently-announced changes to the observance of the May Day non-working public holiday in Gibraltar.
As part of the amended version of the Gibraltar 2012 public holidays published in the Notice no 3883 of the Gibraltar Gazette, the May Day public holiday is henceforth to be observed as a non-working bank holiday on May 1st, as had been announced by recently-elected Chief Minister Picardo (2012-01-05).
Six years ago (2006-11-10 and 2006-11-09), shortly after taking office, the administration of former Chief Minister, Peter Caruana, had changed the rules governing the date when the May Day public holiday is observed as a non-working bank holiday in Gibraltar, to bring them in line with those of the UK, where the first Monday in May is a non-working bank holiday.
The amended version of the Gibraltar 2012 public holidays, published in the Notice no 3883 of the Gibraltar Gazette, also confirms the creation a new annual non-working public holiday, "Workers Memorial Day", based on April 28.
