Management moves after vote for strikes at Driving Standards Agency

Issue No. 2246

A solid strike vote by driving examiners and administration workers in the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has forced management to move over job losses and closures.

Bosses want to close offices in Cardiff and Newcastle.

Some 62 percent of workers voted for strikes and 83 percent for action short of strikes in a ballot of 2,000 PCS members.

Management has offered a guarantee of no compulsory redundancies until March 2012.

PCS members’ meetings felt that this was a vindication of the union—but not enough to end the dispute.

If management doesn’t come back with further improvements, the union says it will call strikes.
