As a result of the Christmas vacation (which is a public vacation by default in South Africa) falls on a Sunday this 12 months, SA labour regulation states that the general public vacation must be shifted to the following day.
Right here is the snag: the next day (Monday) is already a public vacation (often known as the Day of Goodwill). So, everybody was curious as to what would occur. Would the next day be made right into a public vacation or not?
Labour unions specifically had been pushing for some extra time without work for employees (or double time for many who need to work).
The Presidency has introduced that the twenty seventh shall be a public vacation this 12 months.
