Bolivia's Ministry of Labour has issued a communique confirming the fact that Monday, November 3, 2014, would be a day in lieu non-working public holiday in Bolivia, on account of the annual Todos los Santos non-working public holiday of Bolivia falling on a Sunday in 2014 ("se traslada al lunes 3 de noviembre al coincidir con domingo").

Earlier this month (2014-10-06), Bolivia's Minister of Labour, Daniel Santalla, had announced that Monday, November 3, 2014, would be observed as a one-off non-working public holiday in Bolivia due to the fact that the upcoming public holiday for the, November 2, All Souls' Day annual non-working public holiday falling on a Sunday in 2014.

The month before (2014-09-13), Bolivia's Ministry of Labour had also confirmed that as per the "Decreto Supremo 22352, del 27 de octubre de 1989", public holidays of Bolivia which fall on a Sunday give rise to a day in lieu non-working public holiday "en caso de que un feriado caiga en un día no laborable debe trasladarse al día hábil más inmediato".

However, last year (2013-10-30 and 2013-10-23) and the one before (2012-10-29), Bolivia's Minister of Labour, Juan López, had issued a statement ruling-out the declaration of Monday, November 4, 2013, as an additional non-working public holiday in Bolivia, to compensate the fact that the annual, November 2 public holiday fell on a Satuday in 2013 ("El feriado se mantiene como tal el día sábado 2 de noviembre, no hay posibilidad de que se pueda recorrer al día lunes").
