The Chilean Congressman Héctor Barría has introduced a bill to declare a public holiday on Monday, May 2, 2022, to compensate the fact that the 2022 Labor Day public holiday of Chile falls on a Sunday.

More generally, the aforementioned bill aims to amend the labor code of Chile and to "declare a holiday on Friday, April 30 or Monday, May 2, each time May 1 coincides with a Saturday or Sunday, respectively".

If the initiative was legislated and signed into law before May 1st, then this would amend the list of previously-announced Chilean 2022 public holidays (2020-10-31).

If not, then even if it were to pass during this parliamentary session, it would not affect the list of 2023-2024 public holidays announced jointly by Chile's Ministro Secretario General de Gobierno and Chile's Ministerio del Trabajo y Previsión Social, late last year (2021-12-04).
