Re - not being able to use a conjugated verb after le lendemain.

The following sentence is given as an example in a dictionary explanation for "le lendemain".

"Il a été décrété que le lendemain serait un jour férié".

Is this sentence grammatically incorrect because it uses the conjugated verb serait after le lendemain?

This question relates to:
French lesson "When to use "demain"/"hier" vs "le lendemain"/"la veille" vs "le jour suivant"/"le jour précédent""

In this example, "le lendemain" is the subject of the sentence. The statement about it not being followed by a conjuated verb relates to "le lendemain" being used as a temporal qualifier.
