    Without more context it is difficult to be certain. A wedge is a hard object, two of whose planes meet in a very sharp angle. It can be used to split apart firewood (and other things) or to create a gap or opening between two objects.

    I am going to guess that in your case, the expression 'wedge-driving' is being used figuratively to describe the behavior of an individual or group using a strategy designed to 'drive a wedge' between two people or two factions of a group. The intention is to divide an otherwise cohesive unit for political or simply malicious reasons.

    I hope this is useful,
