Windsor change – we deserve more bank holidays (not just for royal weddings), says TUC

The TUC has said Britain deserves more bank holidays – and not just for next year’s royal wedding.

Responding to calls from Conservative and Labour MPs for a bank holiday to mark the royal wedding next May, TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady said: “Workers in the UK put in billions of hours of unpaid overtime every year. Whether royalists or republicans, they have earned a day off.

“We have fewer public holidays than the rest of Europe. Only Romania gets less of a break. Britain deserves more bank holidays – and not just for next year’s royal wedding.”
