Argentina Could Extend June 27 Public Sector Holiday

The Lower House of the Province of Buenos Aires ("Cámara de Diputados de la Provincia de Buenos Aires") has approved the extension to the Provincial level of last year's Ley Nº 26.876, which makes June 27 an annual non-working public sector holiday in Argentina for the federal public sector.

The aforementioned provincial bill now moves to the Senate.

Last year (2013-07-05), Argentina's Congress approved in its final reading the "Ley Nº 26.876, que declaró el día 27 de junio de cada año como el Día del Trabajador del Estado" which, beginning in 2014, makes June 27 an annual non-working public sector holiday in Argentina for the federal public sector, while encouraging other levels of government to follow suit (Se invita a las provincias y municipios de toda la República a instaurar el 27 de junio como día de descanso en las respectivas administraciones públicas).

The Ley Nº 26.876 was turned into law by Argentina's President, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, later last summer (2013-08-10), when she issued Decree 1059/2013.
