Days ago, the national government decreed a holiday for public administration workers on December 30, with which employees will have one more day of rest this Friday; however, the measure does not reach the banks.
In this sense, as happened on Friday, December 23, financial institutions will keep their doors open to serve their users, as the banks They will work their regular hours.
Like the banks, the exchange market will operate during its regular hours, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For his part, workers in the private sector will be subject to what the employers decide to do for the day on Friday.
It should be remembered that the holiday decreed by the national government was established with the objective that citizens can travel to the different regions of the country to spend the New Year celebrations with their loved ones.
“The end of the year parties contain a strong traditional aspect and family reunions and, through the holidays decreed both on the 23rd and 30th, they would facilitate meetings, especially for those who have their loved ones in more distant places. ”, indicated the Government when announcing the measure.
However, the workers of the AFIP (Federal Administration of Public Revenues) will be exempt from the decision, since they are at the end of the fiscal year, so they do not see it as appropriate to suspend their activities.
Likewise, the City of Buenos Aires announced that it will not accept the average of the national Government, for which all its services and activities will function normally this Friday.
How will public transport be?
Like financial institutions, public transport will operate normally on Friday, December 30. The same will happen on Saturday, December 31, while on January 1 the lines will have reduced frequencies, since they will work with holiday hours.
For its part, the subway, if one takes into account what happened for the Christmas celebrations, would work on Saturday between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.; while on Sunday the hours would be from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. However, the schedules would be confirmed by the Buenos Aires Government in the next few hours.
