DVLA workers strike to change the most dangerous workplace in the UK

Running Time: 6mins 9secs

600 COVID-19 infections since September. Thousands have had to self-isolate. 60 more infections just in the past fortnight. One worker dead.

And now workers at the DVLA in Swansea have been forced to strike
– because management refuse to admit they’re forcing too many people into work (around 2,300 at the moment), refuse to acknowledge that aerosol transmission is the main way that the virus transmits, refuse to implement basic safety measures as a result – and in fact refuse to acknowledge that the building is unsafe at all.

This is dangerously irresponsible – and tantamount to corporate manslaughter, especially when you take into account how many people will have been affected in the surrounding city as a result.
