Sunscape Hotel forbids the mustache

Sunscape CuracaoWILLEMSTAD - Sunscape Curacao Resort Spa & Casino does not want its staff with mustache and / or beard. A group of employees who worked initially for Breezes Resort, which was then taken over by Sunscape, disagrees with this new rule. They were told that they were to appear without mustache and / or beard otherwise they would be denied access to the premises.

The group, which consists of about seven men, approached Kenneth Valpoort of the union Horecaf. "I went straight to the hotel, but found that the hotel management has not yet enforced their decision," says Valpoort . "But I have discussed this with the management. They explained to me why they want no staff with a mustache and / or beard. The main reason is hygiene. This also applies to gold teeth and visible tattoos. "

“The hotel forgets that this is part of our culture and we also have to do here with human rights." The union is currently working with a Country Mediator to see how the interests of this group may be met. The group may still maintain their mustache and / or beard in the meantime and the union will work together with the management to try to find a suitable solution.”
