A spokesman for Premier Palaszczuk government of the Australian State of Queensland, has re-confirmed that it would carry-out further amendments to the Holidays Act 1983, so that, the Labour Day annual non-working Queensland public holiday, would be moved back to "its traditional place on the Queensland calendar", the first Monday in May.

Four years ago (2011-12-03, 2011-11-08 and 2011-11-05), the Bligh Labor government of the Australian State of Queensland announced that, beginning in 2012, the Queen's Birthday non-working public holiday would be moved from the 2nd Monday in June to the 1st Monday in October, while on the same occasion, a one-off public holiday for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee would be observed in June 2012 in Queensland.

A year later (2012-09-11, 2012-08-20 and 2012-06-12), the Newman government announced further amendments to the Holidays Act 1983, whereby from 2013 onward, the dates of the Birthday of the Sovereign (Queen's Birthday) public holiday and of the Labour Day public holiday were changed.
