I voted yes in DVLA ballot to stand up for health and safety

To stand up for health and safety is the reason a member who works at the DVLA in Swansea voted yes in the PCS health and safety ballot, which ends at noon on 11 March

It's not just what's happening now, it's what's going to happen for our kids, and our kids' kids, because you've got to stand up for health and safety. There's a lot of things that have happened in the past like people who worked in factories and now they've got bad hearing.

They didn't realise it was wrong back then; now we do realise and we wear safety gear to protect our ears. Although we’re working in a different environment that doesn't mean that we shouldn't have the same standards. Why haven't we got windows that open and why haven't we got a system where we're being kept safe in a global pandemic? That’s why I voted yes.

If you’ve not voted, send off your ballot paper now so it reaches the independent scrutineers in time.
