May 1, 2019 Holiday | Labor Day

May 1, 2019 is a regular holiday as per Proclamation No. 555 by the President of the Philippines. This year, May 1 will fall on Wednesday.

Labor Day commemorates the hardworking men and women in our country. Most workers usually use this holiday to start rallies and demonstrations where they would air their grievances and clamor for reform.

This holiday was first celebrated on May 1, 1903, when more than a hundred thousand workers were organized by the first labor union called Union Obrero Democratia de Filipinas (UODF) to march from Plaza Moriones in Tondo to Malacanang and demand the then American-led government for fairer working conditions.
