Try taking out the plus sign - date interprets this as a timezone

Indeed.  This question has been asked before:

Would it be worthwhile adding yydebug support to date (and touch) with, say, a --date-debug flag? I tried turning it on and the output is confusingly dense, not even printing the token in all cases.

I see from the bison manual that a custom yyprint function can be provided, but I'm not familiar enough with parsers to suggest one.
