Hot on the heels of Monday’s bank holiday, the TUC are calling on the government to increase the number of bank holidays in England and Wales. We currently enjoy eight bank holidays, but this is fewer than other EU countries who have an average of 12.
Ideally, the TUC would like another bank holiday between now and Christmas to help combat the pressures of the workplace. But it seems that the government have ‘no current plans’ to do this. Ah well.
