The Prime Minister of Bahrain, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, initially issued the proclamation that this is a non-working, public holiday in 2015. At this point, it was also stated that all government ministries, establishments, and state bodies would stay closed for the entire day.

On Labour Day, many workers take the time to relax and mingle with neighbours, friends, and families. There are some who plan meals and gatherings.

There are some cities and towns where officials give speeches, and workers gather together for special labour-related events. In most cases, it is a laid back day that allows those who are usually at work, to relax and reflect on the lengths the country has come regarding labour, wages, and more.
