Joint Union Asbestos Committee
Link to the Joint Union Asbestos Committee (JUAC) is formed from the union members of the Asbestos in Schools Group (AiS). It works in conjunction with the AiS and supports its aim and objectives. It has launched a new Website www.juac.org.uk.
Founded in 2010, Joint Union Asbestos Committee protects education workers by raising awareness of asbestos in schools, seeking improved management of asbestos in education sector buildings and ultimately to seek the safe removal of the asbestos. JUAC comprises appointed representatives from the six major teaching unions (ASCL, , ATL , NASUWT, NAHT NUT, Voice) and the four major general industrial unions (UNISON, Unite the Union, UCATT and the GMB).
Asbestos in Schools Wales
Ais Wales is part of the Asbestos in Schools Group.
AiS Wales has launched a parents right to know campaign:
"We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to put measures in place to ensure that parents and guardians of children across Wales can easily access information about the presence and management of asbestos in all school buildings.
Additional site run by us
www.schoolasbestosaction.co.uk gives parents the ability to check their own school's asbestos management and gives them the facts to assess the effectiveness of the plan. The site is also a campaigning site with a list of common sense measures the government, the HSE, LEAs and schools should adopt to make management effective.
