Yesterday, the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario voted at its annual general meeting that student cell phones should be turned off and stored during school hours, unless a teacher gives permission.

The vote was part of a series of motions requesting that radiation from cell phones and WiFi be recognized as a potential workplace hazard for teachers.

“There is cause for concern for members’ health and safety, especially women,” said Sandra Wash, a teacher representing Peel District who spoke at the meeting.

Two years ago the World Health Organization officially declared wireless radiation from cell phones and WiFi to be a possible Carcinogen.

A second vote yesterday afternoon demanded that school Boards stop hiding WiFi transmitters in the ceiling, and label them as part of a hazard control program.

ETFO is Canada’s largest teachers union, representing seventy-six thousand Ontario elementary teachers.
