Manila, Philippines – Malacañang has declared June 24, 29, and July 1 as special non-working holidays for certain places in the Philippines.

From a news post made by The Inquirer, the proclamation was signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea on June 18 and was released to the public just this past Thursday. “It is but fitting and proper that people be given full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies,” the proclamation has stated.

Proclamation No. 750 states that July 1 is a special non-working holiday for those who are living in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental. This is for them to be able to celebrate their 59th Charter Anniversary.

June 24 has been declared as a special non-working holiday for the province of Masbate. This is for the people of the province to celebrate the Kasadyaan ng Dagat 2019.

The Tree Growing Festival is going to be held in Koronadal City, South Cotabato on June 29. This date was declared as a special non-working holiday as well.

Once a day is declared as a special non-working holiday, classes and work are to be suspended on that day. Any establishment that needs to be open on the said holiday will be required by law to give additional pay to those that will be going to work. The usual computation for that is they will be given an additional 30% of what they will be earning on that day.
