The Romanian Government has approved a 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.
Recall that, a couple of month ago (2016-04-08), we had reported on a bill introduced in Romania's upper house of parliament (Senatului României) which would have added a new, June 1st, annual non-working public holiday in Romania, as well as bank holiday in Romania, to mark International Children's Day.
At the time, we were cautious in our reporting, as the Romanian media regularly announces new non-working public holidays in Romania (2016-01-04 and 2015-04-23), 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 (2012-06-27 and 2012-05-22), when Saint Andrew was declared as a new annual, November 30, non-working public holiday in Romania.
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 pass through both houses, before being signed into law by the Romanian executive.
