The Federation Council has approved the law changing the list of Russian holidays
The Federation Council (upper house of Russian parliament) has approved the law changing the list of Russian holidays. According to the law, New Year holidays will be prolonged from 2 to 5 days (January 1-5). The law cancels three holidays, May 2 (one of the two days of spring and labor), November 7 (the anniversary of the October revolution, or the day of reconciliation and accord) and December 12 (the Constitution day). The law introduces a new holiday, the Day of People's Unity (November 4). As a result Russians will have 12 days off instead of 11. The law stipulates that wages should not be cut during the holidays. The payment of pieceworkers should be fixed by the organization and the trade union in accordance with the contract. The Federation Council budget committee believes that the changes in the list of holidays will not affect the national revenues. The president is to sign the new law which will come into force after that.
