At the last session, the Government made a decision that the 8th of June (Saturday) will be a working day in order to compensate for the 7th of May, a day that was declared non-working, due to the visit of Pope Francis.

“That means that the 8th of June will be a working day for all those working in the state and public administration in the territory of City Skopje. It is also a working day for employees and students in primary and secondary schools in the territory of the City of Skopje who missed work on the 7th of May, as well as kindergartens and health institutions in the territory of the City of Skopje, which will receive plans from the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy and the Ministry of Health in regards to working in these activities”, said the government in a statement.

Additionally, the Government recommends that the decision to work on June the 8th, should be implemented by the municipalities in the city of Skopje and the City of Skopje.

“At the same time, if the government’s previous recommendation for May the 7th to be a non-working day was supported by the private sector, now the Government recommends to the private sector that this day should be a working day”, is stated in the announcement.
