    GPS Technology Raises Concern on the Job - By Larry McShane, AP, Washington Post
    While they're out chasing the news, employees at a New York television station are wondering if anybody is tailing them.

    The news trucks at WABC-TV were recently equipped with Global Positioning System transmitters, raising concerns among the station's union workers about privacy. It's a small but growing workplace topic as companies increasingly embrace the GPS technology already in use to track everything from wayward teens to sex offenders.

    'We're concerned about the possible misuse of the information that these systems can supply,' said Gene Maxwell, head of Local 16 of the National Association of Broadcast Engineers and Technicians. 'In particular, we wanted to make sure that it really wasn't going to be used as a disciplinary tool.'
