A week after Mexican Independence Day the state of Baja California will observe another holiday on Friday.
This time, the authorities will observe the anniversary of the State and Municipal Employees Union.
State Executive Officer Rocío López said all state agencies will observe the local holiday that is originally on Sept. 22.
However, in order to grant employees a large weekend the holiday was moved a day.
The holiday is included in the union’s contract and state law.
As in other holidays, law enforcement and public healthcare agencies will remain open for emergencies. Activities resume Monday, López said.
