Theale & Oxford: DVLA Strikes
Workers at dozens of Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) offices will stage a 24-hour strike today in a row over closures and job losses.
Members of the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) at 39 local and 10 enforcement offices in England, Scotland and Wales will take part in the industrial action.
The union said DVLA offices facing closure were in both Oxford and Theale.
It argues closures signal the end of a "highly prized'' face-to-face service to motorists.
DVLA said it could not guarantee a business-as-usual service because of the strike and asked people to avoid travelling to any DVLA office today.
Contact centres will be operating a reduced service and callers were warned to expect longer waiting times.
The organisation suggested conducting transactions by other means such as electronically or via the Post Office.
