If you work at the DVLA and you're not yet a PCS member, there is still time to join so you can vote in the ballot.
You are invited to join the PCS north west branch AGM via Zoom on 3 March 2021 at 12pm.
PCS is balloting members on strike action amid escalating concerns over health and safety at the DVLA. Here are five great reasons to vote yes.
PCS met the Department for Transport permanent secretary on Monday, to state that the DVLA was not acting on the government’s own advice to do all it can to stop the spread of Covid-19. PCS reps conducted a health and safety inspection of the DVLA site yesterday but were obstructed by management.
DVLA CEO Julie Lennard emailed staff yesterday about the future of home working. PCS has been pushing for more staff to work from home throughout the pandemic, and for the DVLA to develop the capacity for more staff to perform their roles safely from home.
Not only do we feel the DVLA has not done enough to enable this, especially when compared with other civil service departments, but we are now concerned about the lack of guarantee about future home working for those who are currently at home. Read our key points in response to her message to staff.
