The American Federation of Government Employees took out a full page ad in Politico in which it made a series of demands about how OPM can make amends with the federal workforce over the two recent data breaches that hit the agency’s servers

OPM’s “fan club” continues to grow in the wake of the two recent data breaches that hit the agency’s computer systems which left the personal data of nearly 26 million individuals exposed.

The American Federation of Government Employees took out a full page ad in Politico in which it said the Office of Personnel Management is keeping federal employees “in the dark about the data breach.”

Furthermore, AFGE demanded in the ad that OPM provide details to federal workers about the scope of the breach and what types of personal data were compromised, and it also said that OPM has to give impacted feds free lifetime credit monitoring, saying the 18 months being provided was inadequate.

Perhaps coincidentally, OPM has made progressĀ on at least the first item in the listĀ of AFGE’s demands when it released much more information about the breaches today.
