The Public and Commercial Services Union has announced its programme of action will see National Highways traffic officer service members starting to take strike action from 16 December.
It says its national strike ballot on pay, pensions, jobs and cuts to the Civil Service Compensation Scheme closed earlier this month and it received a positive result for strike action in many areas of the civil service, including DVSA.
In National Highways, 74% of members voted for strike action on a nearly 59% turnout, well above the required legal threshold of 50%.
It says the initial phase of its strike action will be targeted at areas that will have a significant impact on employers’ operations and the government.
It is asking all traffic officer service members, on road and ROC operators, across National Highways in England, to take strike action, with different strike dates for different regions before a national strike on 3 and 4 January 2023.
