PCS members working in IT support across the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, are to strike for 4 weeks from 22 August, along with colleagues who support people wishing to become approved driving instructors.
PCS informed management of the intention to strike yesterday in a long-running dispute over working practices and restructures.
Our members being called out on strike, are members of IT, including front line user services impacting on IT systems and incident management and members who deliver the processes for those who wish to become driving instructors. They work in Nottingham and Swansea.
PCS will be looking to call out further groups of workers, as we move to September, on a similar basis, as we hit the employer hard with a rolling programme of action. As Brexit approaches the action will intensify further, should talks fail to deliver a resolution to a long and protracted dispute.
