The NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, has welcomed the announcement from the Scottish Government that it is to order testing of the water, soil and methane membrane at the Buchanan and St Ambrose schools campus in North Lanarkshire.
The NASUWT took strike action to withdraw its members from the campus last month over the failure of the employer to act appropriately to address the serious concerns over the health and safety of the site and has been pressing consistently for a full site survey.
Ms Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:
“This announcement by the Scottish Government is the result of the courageous and determined stance taken by our members to take strike action.
“The NASUWT has consistently called for a full site survey as the only way to get a true and comprehensive picture of the site and to identify whether there are any potential hazards which could affect the health and safety of staff and pupils.
“The announcement of these tests will no doubt be welcomed by all staff, pupils and parents at the school, who have been experiencing deep stress and uncertainty about their welfare.
“The NASUWT looks forward to receiving the results of these tests as swiftly as possible and will consider the findings in consultation with members.”
