School bus union workers held a rally Thursday ahead of the Greenwich Board of Education meeting. They're the same employees who called out sick in solidarity Monday after a co-worker was decertified.
The bus drivers rallied ahead of the BOE meeting where they then voiced their disagreement in how the district treated and removed school bus driver Nadia Micourt. They asked for Micourt to be reinstated.
About 80 bus drivers and monitors called out of work Monday in support of Miscourt, which left more than 2,000 Greenwich students without a ride to and from school.
Bus service has resumed since that sick out on Monday, but the union workers are still upset.
Greenwich Public Schools recently decertified Miscourt for allegedly driving dangerously.
"We're here to support her and tell the district that it's unfair and we want them to rethink what they've done and make it right by putting her back in the district to drive a school bus," said Richard Davis, president of Local 100.
The union says the district did not give Micourt a fair chance.
"No prior warning, no ability to defend herself, no hearing, no due process," said Davis.
The union feels if it can happen to Micourt, it can happen to any one of them. They say they hope the board hears their pleas, but if not, they will continue their push for justice.
