Ecuador's government has declared Wednesday, May 1, 2019, as a half-day additional one-off non-working public holiday in Ecuador, on account of the upcoming Labour Day public holiday of Ecuador.

Just last week (2019-04-21), Ecuador's Ministerio de Turismo had confirmed that the 2019 public holiday in Ecuador for Labour Day would be observed on Friday, May 3, 2019,as per the legislation (2016-12-21) amending the 2003 "Ley Orgánica de Servicio Civil y Carrera Administrativa y de Unificación y Homologación de las Remuneraciones del Sector Público" (2003-12-04), by virtue of which most Ecuadorean public holidays' day off are moved to the nearest weekend.

However, last year (), the recently elected president of Ecuador, already started tampering with the public holidays of Ecuador (2018-11-30, 2018-10-17, 2018-09-27, 2018-08-04, 2018-05-18, 2018-04-26), and its seems that he just could not resist the temptation to tamper with Ecuador's public holidays, once more.
