Labour Union Agreed On Mandatory Drug Testing For Their Members At Holiday Inn

December 03 2008, Aruba.

PALM BEACH-The management of Aruba Holiday Inn Hotel & Casino has decided to submit all of
their employees for a mandatory drug test without previous notice. Employees were warned in
advance that those who were found positive for the use of drugs will be discharged immediately.
However the employees were not given a day in which they will be submitted for a test.

The management kept its word, and a mandatory drug test was done recently. A few employees
tested positive for the use of drugs, and were discharged by management. The number of
employees that tested positive is not known. The spokesperson for Holiday Inn confirmed
that a few employees tested positive, and they were asked not to return back to work.

The labor union representing the employees at Holiday Inn (FTA) was aware and agreed on the
mandatory drug testing. The drug test came right after the management signed a new labor
agreemeent with FTA. The management of Holiday Inn is striving for a personnel body that is
drug free, and assured its employees that the mandatory drug test has nonthing to do with the
signing of the new labor agreement.

The Minister of Justice, Rudy Croes has announced a similar mandatory drug test among
government employees last summer, but no testing has been done so far. It appears that many
hotels and private companies on the island will now follow the example of Holiday Inn for
mandatory drug testing.
