Private Sector Lobby Calls for “Time Off” for Carnival


The St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce Industry and Agriculture wishes to remind its members that Carnival Monday and Tuesday are not Public or Commercial Holidays. Yet, we suggest to members and the wider business community that in the spirit of Carnival and as has been the tradition, employers should give their employees time off on Monday 17th July and Tuesday 18th July 2017 so that they can participate in Carnival celebrations on those days.
