Motion text

That this House notes with concern the planned strike action by Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) staff over proposed changes to staff working conditions; further notes the widespread support for this action amongst balloted staff with 91 per cent voting in favour, from a turnout of 65 per cent; calls on the Government to intervene in negotiations so that a deal may be reached between the DVSA and its staff so that strike action may be averted; and urges the use of ACAS to facilitate the process as necessary.
