September 7, 2009 is a Non-working Holiday?

As claimed by my officemates and allegedly seen on TV, September 7, 2009, Monday, was declared a non-working holiday.

Ever the skeptic as I am as my officemates already made wrong announcements before, I checked out Inquirer.net and Philstar.com, Manila Bulleting and gov.ph for the official annoucement but no latest news yet posted.

I'm just hoping it's true. All I know is that September 7 is Labor Day in America (celebrated on the first Monday of September) or is it because of the burial of Iglesia Ni Cristo's Erano Manalo that's why it's declared a special non-working holiday.
