We have issued notice of industrial action to DVSA and we must all support our members in dispute.
Back in March DfT promised the following for staff who volunteered for shift-working during Operation Yellowhammer:
Should the individual decide to end their period of volunteering, it would be reasonable to request a week’s notice in order to comply with business needs. This is not a contractual requirement but would constitute a reasonable management instruction.
PCS members working in IT support across the DVSA are to strike for 4 weeks from 22 August.
PCS has been balloting a select group of members within DVSA in the last few weeks, because members have told us that the issues of dispute require resolution but different tactics are needed if talks with DVSA yet again prove futile.
Civil service pay guidance issued.
