Swansea DVLA strike

There were some hardy PCS pickets out at Swansea's DVLA this morning, in sub-zero temperatures. They are striking against cuts, privatisation and the destruction of services.

Pictured is branch vice-chair Dave Warren. Nationally the DVLA has lost hundreds of jobs with the closure of local offices.

Also striking as part of PCS' day of action are coastguard staff. Swansea coastguard station is one of those selected for closure as part of government cuts which threaten lives with the loss of vital local knowledge.
