Romanian June 1 Public Holiday Passes Senate

Romania's upper house of parliament, the Senatului Romβniei (Senate) has approved amendments to Article 139 of the Romanian Labour Code, with the aim of declaring June 1, Children's Day as a new annual non-working public holiday in Romania.

Earlier this year (08-Apr-2016), the aforementioned legislative proposal to amend Article 139 of Law No. 53/2003, the Romanian Labour Code, with the aim of declaring June 1, Children's Day as a new annual non-working public holiday in Romania, was introduced in Romania's upper house of parliament (Senate), and was supported by the Romanian Government, later that spring (13-Jun-2016).

At the time, we were cautious in our reporting, as the Romanian media regularly announces new non-working public holidays in Romania (04-Jan-2016 and 23-Apr-2015), but, in fact, most of these turn out to be national working holidays; with the last time a new non-working public holiday was declared in Romania being 4 years ago (27-Jun-2012 and 22-May-2012), when Saint Andrew was declared as a new annual, November 30, non-working public holiday in Romania.

We are still quite cautious, as in the meantime (06-Sep-2016), Romania's Chamber of Deputies passed a bill, which makes January 24, the day when Romania celebrates the Union of the Romanian Principalities, a non-working public holiday in Romania for both the private and public sectors, by amending the Romanian Labour Code.

One of these 2 new Romanian public holidays may come to pass (or none), but it would be surprising if both did.

In any event, the aforementioned amendments to Article 139 of the Romanian Labour Code, with the aim of declaring June 1, Children's Day as a new annual non-working public holiday in Romania, must still pass through Romania's Chamber of Deputies, before being signed into law by the Romanian President.
