Arthur Hayday (24 October 1869 in London – 28 February 1956) was an English Labour Party politician.

After learning his trade as a chemical trimmer and stoker, Hayday became involved in the National Union of General Workers, of which he was an official for many years. He served as President of the Trades Union Congress from 1930 to 1931.

In December 1918, Hayday was elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Nottingham West. Despite a large majority, he lost his seat in a notable loss for Labour in the 1931 general election. In November, 1935 he regained his seat. He served as Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Lord Privy Seal, John Robert Clynes. Hayday retired from Parliament in 1945. He appeared in the newspapers for his work on numerous occasions.
