The Ministry of Labour and Social Security has granted a full-day ‘tolerância de ponto’ to all workers and public servants who profess the Christian faith on the 14th of this month (Good Friday).
The decision came in response to a request made by the Christian Council of Mozambique, and will be the second year in which the Good Friday ‘tolerância’ is a full day off, and not just from 12 o’clock as previously.
The ‘tolerância’ will however not cover workers the disruption of whose professional activity runs against the public interest, the press release sent to Folha de Maputo points out.
Marking the date, the minister wished Christians a happy celebration, appealing at the same time to the beneficiaries and all Christians to continue in the search for the well-being of all Mozambican society.
The path of sacrifice, the statement said, should translate into the promotion of peace, national unity, social and labour justice, with a view to the integral development of the country.Source: Folha de Maputo
