    In the near future, the Ministry of Labor will publish a draft resolution that relates to holidays in 2024, head of the department Anton Kotyakov told Izvestia at SPIEF-2023. It is planned to make the transfer in such a way that Russians have four days of rest on May Day instead of one on May 1, which falls on Wednesday. At the same time, the New Year holidays will not be affected. They will be full with going to work on January 8.

Next year is no exception.

    As Anton Kotyakov told Izvestia, for sure in 2024, February 23 and March 8 will have three days off each. The fact is that both holidays fall on a Friday. Also, the New Year holidays will last exactly until January 8, the head of the Ministry of Labor said.

    “And for May there will be two periods – for May 1 and May 9. Moreover, this year May 1 falls on a Wednesday,” Kotyakov said.

    Therefore, if there were no transfers, then the celebration of May Day was limited to one day in the middle of the week. But in the Ministry of Labor, as noted by Kotyakov, “the May ones are concentrated in such a way that it is convenient for citizens.”

    The draft prepared by the department provides that two working days at the end of April will become days off due to the transfer of two days off – one from April 27 (Saturday), and the second day is planned to be borrowed from the November holidays, the Ministry of Labor specified.

    Thus, on May Day we will rest for four days in a row, we will start on April 28, and we will go to work on May 2. True, the previous week will be six days.

    According to the head of the Ministry of Labor, the department tried to maintain a balance between the New Year and May holidays in order to continue to provide full-fledged New Year holidays.

    “We are now hearing calls to shorten the weekend for the New Year. But the way we propose now, it turns out quite well. Now we are trying to do it,” the minister said.
