The Ministry of Welfare of the government of Latvia has released the draft rules "On the transfer of working days in 2021" annual official list of official non-working national public holidays in Latvia, and bridge non-working public holidays in Latvia, for the upcoming calendar year 2021.
The practice of declaring additional, one-off, bridge public holidays, compensated by the same number of Saturday working days, had been halted in 2012 (2012-01-04), but only for a year (2013-01-16).
A recent survey by the Latvian Ministry of the Economy, in which over 23000 people took part (about 2 percent of the work force), showed a support of almost 95 percent for the declaration of bridge holiday, compensated by working Saturdays.
