Valencians will once again enjoy a day off this June in accordance with the 2022 work calendar approved by the Generalitat. This is Friday, June 24, the day on which the San Juan festivities are celebrated, a historical commemoration of Alicante that was added a few years ago to the list of paid and non-recoverable holidays.
In fact, last year the Consell did decide to establish San Juan as a recoverable holiday, so the workers who did not go to their job had to return the hours in the following months of 2021. A situation that will not be repeated this time according to the resolution published in the Official Gazette of the Generalitat Valenciana (DOGV).
