After this XXL weekend for the Passage to Immortality of General Martín Miguel de Güemes and the Day of the Flag, a new holiday appears on the June calendar, although only for a sector of workers.
This is Monday, June 27, which is a national holiday for the State Worker’s Day, date established by Law 26,876 in July 2013, so that the workers of the national public administration and those of the provinces that adhere will have another long weekend before the end of the month.
“June 27 is established as a day of rest for employees of the national public administration, in which tasks will not be provided, assimilating it to national holidays for all legal purposes,” says article 2 of the norm. And in the 3rd, the provinces are invited to join, which the province of Buenos Aires did, so that Monday will also be a rest for the Buenos Aires state.
The extra-long holiday that began on Friday and will end on Monday is held in commemoration of Martín Miguel de Güemes, who ruled the province of Salta and fought against the Spanish in the Argentine War of Independence. The holiday of June 17 was decreed in 2016 and, when it falls on a Saturday or Sunday, it can be moved to create a long weekend and encourage domestic tourism. On the other hand, June 20 is Flag Day, in commemoration of the date on which General Manuel Belgrano, creator of the national flag, died.
