The UAE National Day is also referred to as Union Day, as the country marks the official unification of the emirates in 1971.
Last year, the private and public sectors were given a day off on December 1 to mark Martyrs’ Day, now known as Commemoration Day. Combined with the National Day holidays, workers had enjoyed an extended break at the start of December.
