Industrial action update

DVLA has also released an update on the developments with the recent industrial action by some members of the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) Union. The second PCS ballot ended on 10 November and the result has now been announced. Fewer than half of PCS members voted in support of industrial action, this is just 17% of the entire workforce in DVLA. The overwhelming majority of staff, more than 80%, did not support further strikes in DVLA.
