Asbestos In Schools

Thursday 26th April 2018, 16.30am
The Fountains, Bristol

A few days before Workers Memorial Day the National Education Union (NUT Section) will be leafleting parents warning of the dangers of Asbestos in Bristol’s Schools. Come and join them to spread the message.

  • Asbestos remains a killer in schools and there is simply no evidence to support the Government’s case that it is safer to manage asbestos than to remove it.  Removal must take place under strictly controlled conditions and is highly regulated.  It is misleading and scaremongering to suggest that removal might be unsafe.
  • At least 319 teachers have died from mesothelioma since 1980, and 205 of these deaths have occurred since 2001. The real numbers are likely to be much higher because these figures do not include anyone over the age of 75.
  • Teachers are now dying from mesothelioma at an average of 17 per year, up from three per year during 1980-85.

March Against School Budget Cuts

March Against School Cuts

Saturday 20th May 2017, 11.00am
College Green, Bristol

Schools across the region are being hit hard by government funding cuts. Schools are being forced to make often drastic reductions in the number of school support staff. The majority affected are learning support staff so the impact will be felt directly in the classroom by pupils and teachers leading to larger class sizes, less support for children, particularly those with special needs, and reduced subject choices.

Bristol Trades Union Council urges all trade union members to support this march. School staff, parents and pupils are building a campaign across the country. On the day of the march in Bristol there will be similar demonstrations in London and many other cities and towns. The march is supported by South Gloucestershire and Bristol Fair funding for all schools who have been organising a growing mass campaign by parents.
