DVLA employees set to strike

  • 30 May 2012
  • By Christopher Walton

The DVLA has called for operators to conduct business with it on any other day but Friday 1 June, after the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union called on its members to take part in a walkout from 3pm.

The PCS says that the two-hour strike will involve its 1,200 members who work in the 39 DVLA local and enforcement offices in England, Wales and Scotland that the government plans to close.

It also promises another strike at the DVLA from 3pm on Friday 8 June, and further strikes in June at several Department for Transport agencies, including the DSA and Highways Agency.

PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka says: “Instead they’re ploughing on with entirely unnecessary and unpopular cuts to vital transport services. These strikes across the whole range of transport services form a major part of our ongoing fight against cuts to pensions, jobs and pay.”

A statement issued by the DVLA says: “We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause however we would suggest that you conduct any business with us on alternative dates if possible.”

It adds that anyone looking to renew vehicle tax, declare a vehicle off road or apply for a new, updated or replacement driving licence can do so at: www.direct.gov.uk/onlinemotoringservices
