Driving test examiners to strike for two days in hours row

Driving test examiners are to strike for two days next week in a row over working hours.

Members of the Public and Commercial Services union will walk out on November 19 and 20 unless last ditch talks resolve the dispute.

The union represents 1,600 Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency staff at 360 sites across the UK, including driving examiners and officers who carry out vehicle and traffic safety checks.

The row is over new working patterns, which the union says will lead to longer shifts.

Members of the Prospect union at the agency, who test heavy goods vehicles and buses, are also going on strike, for three hours from 8am on November 20.
