Her Excellency President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo through the Executive Secretary Eduardo R. Ermita has declared on Tuesday by virtue of Proclamation No. 2006 the Kalilangan Festival and 71st foundation Anniversary of General Santos City as a special non-working day for all of the generals. This means those who will report for work in the private sector this coming Saturday will be getting 30% more on top of their salaries as holiday pay. Others who would opt not to report for work will be getting no compensation on said day because the principle of "no work, no pay" applies.

Happy Kalilangan Festival & 71st City Foundation Anniversary, everyone!

here's a reprint of the full text of Proclamation No. 2006(link to the scanned copy of this proclamation shall be posted here soon!)
