AFGE Local 2113 Position on the Common Access Card (CAC)

Beginning in early 2002, DOD began issuing a new identification card, known as the Common Access Card (CAC), which is or was to have various personal information stored on it. In January 2002, Local 2113 surveyed both bargaining units for employees' opinions concerning possible uses of such technology and other technology which might potentially be used for employee identification and tracking. Based on the results of that survey, the following draft proposals have been discussed thus far. The Union is being represented in the CAC negotiations by Roger Werner and Michael Ferrante. Until a final agreement is reached, comments are solicited from all bargaining-unit (BU) employees. Input on this subject should be forwarded to: Roger Werner, Michael Ferrante, or afge2113@navy.mil and include "CAC Proposal comments" in the subject line. A section concerning inter-compartmental privacy of information stored on the CAC is still pending. We hope to conclude this negotiation soon, so if you have input on this matter, which is not represented by the verbiage below, it would be best to let Michael or Roger know as soon as possible. The final agreement will be binding on all BU employees and on NAWCTSD concerning its implementation of the CAC with regard to all BU employees.
