The General Secretary of the Malaysian National Union of Bank Employees (Nube), J. Solomon, has appealed to the Malaysian Government and Bank Negara Malaysia (Malaysia's Central Bank) to consider also declaring a one-off non-working bank holiday in Malaysia, on Friday, July 8, 2016, for workers in the banking and financial sectors, to link the 2-day annual Hari Raya Aidilfitri (End of Ramadan) Malaysian public holidays of July 6 and 7, with the following weekend.

The aforementioned request by the Malaysian National Union of Bank Employees that July 8 be declared a one-off non-working bank holiday in Malaysia, for workers in the financial sector, follows similar earlier announcements.

Last month (15-Jun-2016), the Government of Malaysia's State of Penang announced that Friday, July 8, 2016, would be a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia's State of Penang, due to the coincidence of the annual Pengisytiharaan Tapak Warisan Dunia Pulau Pinang state public holiday and of the second day of the upcoming Malaysian public holidays for Hari Raya Puasa (End of Ramadan), on July 7, 2016.

Then, later that same month (24-Jun-2016), the Chief Secretary to the Government of Malaysia, Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa, announced that the Government of Malaysia would consider declaring Friday, July 8, 2016, as a one-off bridge non-working public holiday in Malaysian states where Friday is a regular working day, to link the 2-day annual Hari Raya Aidilfitri (End of Ramadan) Malaysian public holidays of July 6 and 7, with the following weekend, and the Government of Malaysia finally acceded to this demand earlier this week (01-Jul-2016).

Then, most recently (02-Jul-2016), the Governments of the Malaysian states of Johor and Terengganu, in the respective persons of Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin and Menteri Besar Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman, in turn, announced that the Malaysian states of Johor and Terengganu had separately decided to grant Sunday, July 10, 2016, as a one-off day in lieu public sector holiday in the Malaysian states of Johor and Terengganu where Friday is a non-working day.
