WIFI and the French National Library, all unions on the same wavelength
Today, on Friday 23 September 2011, at the time of the Hygiene and Safety Committee of the François Mitterrand BnF (National Library), a vote took place on the project to rollout Wi-Fi in the Oval Room of the Richelieu site (in the 2nd district of Paris), at the Tolbiac site (in the 13th), as well as in the LABO of new technologies, where the only offerings in terms of documents will be those of the Orange operator 'kiosque'.
On the rest of the unions, three experts were appointed: Professor Belpomme from the University of Paris 5 (Descartes), Etienne Cendrier from the French national Robin des Toits Association and Agnès Dutrevis, Officer of the Administrative Library of the City of Paris and member of the Hygiene and Safety Committee for the City.
An exchange of information and clear presentations on the topic showed evidence that such a system would not only be dangerous to the health of the staff in the long term (the WHO having classified electromagnetic waves and possibly carcinogenic, Group 2B) and would close the doors of people who are hypersensitive to electromagnetic waves, the number of which is unfortunately increasing.
In addition, this technology is no longer the most reliable, nor the best suited for the quick transmission of data, contrary to optical fibre, an alternative solution backed by the unions and their experts.
The French Unions (CFDT, CGT and FSU) voted unanimously against this project, thus in compliance with the Precautionary Principle and in favour of equality for everyone with regard to access to Library services.
