Ecuador's Ministerio de Turismo has confirmed that the 2019 public holiday in Ecuador for Labour Day would be observed on Friday, May 3, 2019.
The aforementioned announcement that the 2019 public holiday in Ecuador for Labour Day would be observed on Friday, May 3, 2019, stems from 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, and also applies to regional public holidays in Ecuador ("Si es un feriado local, se hace lo mismo, se cambia a lunes, se hace un puente").
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).
