Further details about Labour Day in New Zealand

It was in 1899 when this was deemed a statutory holiday. Since 1910, it has been held on the fourth Monday in October. The day commemorates when New Zealanders won the right to an 8-hour working day – one of the first countries in the world to recognize this right.
