Mexico May 10 Public Holiday Bill

Source: El Universal (Ciudad de México)
Posted: Monday, May 13, 2013

The Mexican member of parliament, Erick Godar Ureña, has introduced legislation that would add May 10 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Mexico.

It is unlikely that this bill will amount to a change in the public holidays legislation, as Mexico's last and rare change in its public holidays occurred almost 8 years ago (2006-01-17) when Mexico's President, Vincente Fox Quesada, issued a decree modifying article 74 of Mexico's Labour Code (artículo 74 de la Ley Federal del Trabajo) whereby the public holidays hitherto celebrated on the fixed dates of February 5, March 21, and November 20, were henceforth to be celebrated on the first Monday of February, and the third Mondays of March and November respectively.
