A long-running dispute about jobs, closing of offices, pay and privatization has provoked over 2,000 workers from the vehicle licensing authority in Britain to hold a three-hour walkout on August 3, 2012.
Members of staff from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) in Swansea protested against the UK government's plans to close the authority's local offices, warning that it was putting more than 1,200 jobs at risk.
The walkout comes after similar anti-cuts demonstrations, led by Public and Commercial Services (PCS) members in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, took place last week.
"There is now overwhelming evidence that austerity isn't working and the government should stop its cuts immediately and start investing to help our economy get back on track and improve our public services," said Mark Serwotka, PCS general secretary.
Moreover, the British coalition government, has sparked a chain of aggravation towards people in the UK as its policy on spending cuts has affected many key departments like the National Health Services (NHS), job opportunities and public benefits.
