Russians to enjoy 3-day work-week Nov 1-3 - Rostrud

MOSCOW. Nov 1 (Interfax) - The first work-week of November will be a short one in Russia, as November 4 marks the holiday People's Unity Day and Friday will also be a day-off, deputy chief of Russia's Federal Labor and Employment Service (Rostrud) Ivan Shklovets said.

"Russians will have four days off in a row, from Thursday November 4 through Sunday November 7, inclusive. November 3 is a pre-holiday day and the workday will be one hour shorter," Shklovets told Interfax.

The Friday day-off is moved from Saturday November 13, which will be a workday, he said.
