The strike will last until Sunday – with 650 Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union members taking action.

PCS said the dispute has been trigged by the DVLA’s decision not to pay an allowance for Saturday working to contact-centre staff recruited since the start of 2015, and a 50% cut for staff who do receive it from 1 September.
