PCS members in DVLA are taking further strike action over Covid safety from 4-7 May, as management refuses to meet demands for reduced numbers on site

DVLA members set to walk out over Covid safety fears

This latest action follows the successful walkout from 6-9 April, where more than 1,400 PCS members took strike action over health and safety concerns at the DVLA sites. The action in April gathered huge public support, with messages of solidarity still pouring in from other unions and members of the public.

More than 2,000 staff are still being made to attend the main Swansea site daily – a site which has seen more than 500 Covid cases. PCS will again be asking all staff who are being made to go into work to take the action. This action is needed so we can push DVLA management to take health and safety concerns seriously, by reducing numbers on site.

PCS continues to meet with management to see if an agreement can be reached to resolve the dispute.

An electronic PCS member ballot will take place 5 – 21 May
