Jim McMahon responding to news that workers at DVLA in Swansea will go on strike over continuing Covid health and safety concerns

 

Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, responding to news that workers at DVLA in Swansea will go on strike over continuing Covid health and safety concerns, said:

 

“It is shameful that staff are having to strike because of Tory Ministers’ failure to keep them safe from Covid in a government building.

 

“The Transport Secretary has failed to explain why he ignored warnings about this, and how a government agency appears to have become the site of the largest workplace outbreak of the virus. He must act immediately to sort out this mess of his own creation.”
