GPS on City of Columbus Vehicles

COLUMBUS - The City of Columbus is halfway through installing new GPS units on all city vehicles.
The new units will be able to track where the vehicles have been and hours of use. There are also alerts for when the vehicles may be used after hours. All of the data will be stored and used to maximize fuel consumption.
The entire project is going to cost 1.5 million dollars, and the city projects that it will have paid for itself in less than 18 to 24 months.
Some of the workers' Unions were not happy with the monitoring and when asked how the employees would be held responsible, the question was directed to the city's HR office.
ABC 6/FOX 28 put a call into the office, but have not received a call back from them as to which Unions are the most upset with the new technology.
