About 650 members of the Public and Commercial Services union will walk out from Friday in protest at cuts to Saturday pay.

The union said staff recruited this year were not being paid an allowance for Saturday working, while others faced a 50% cut.

PCS says workers elsewhere in the civil service get extra weekend pay.

There seems to be the idea that South Wales is a low wage economy and DVLA can get away with exploiting its staff there. This is completely unacceptable.

– PCS industrial officer Keith Johnston

DVLA said in a statement that the strike could lead to a reduced service and longer waiting times.
