TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture, Muhadjir Effendy, announced the government decided to cut short collective leave days for year-end holidays from six to three days.
Muhadjir asserted that the reduction of the collective leave days for Eid al-Fitr, which was moved to December, would not be replaced at a later date.
“It is reduced, so it means it will not be replaced. It is slashed,” said Muhadjir in an online press conference on Monday, Dec. 1, 2020.
According to him, the holidays would technically be reduced by three days, Dec. 28-30. The decision would be signed by three state ministers; the Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Minister, the Religious Affairs Minister, and the Manpower Minister.
Muhadjir underlined that the government did not trim the Christmas and New Year holidays and added the replacement collective leave days for Eid al-Fitr.
As the government had determined, the national holidays of Christmas will remain on Dec. 24-25, followed by the weekend from Dec. 26-27.
The replacement collective leave days for Eid al-Fitr, which was initially set on Dec. 28-31 by the state ministers last April, will only be on Dec. 31 and will be continued by the New Year holiday on Jan. 1, 2021, and the weekend on Jan. 2-3.
