Here’s the latest on the ongoing school bus strike in the Cabarrus County Schools.
“This Is Why You’re a Cabbie” – From the hit ABC television series “The Bachelor” The latest on a strike that has been going on in the Cabbies’ schools for weeks: “Cabarrans Schools are a closed shop.
They’re just closed, except for a handful of people who get to come and go.
They get to be in a class and get a class assignment but they don’t get to pick the kids.
They can’t pick the children.
We’ve got to have a process that’s going to work.”
“I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been called a cabdriver, and I’ve had to tell them I’m just a school teacher, because I’m not allowed to pick students.
I have to go and pick the students, because it’s a closed store.
It’s just a closed school.
And I can’t do that.
I’m stuck in there for three days straight.
And they can’t have me, because they’re in a closed business.
They have to have me in the classroom, and they can have me pick students, and then I have another three days off.”
“[It’s] the worst situation I’ve ever had in my life.
I’ve never had to go through this, and it’s just ridiculous.”
A strike by drivers in Cabarras County Schools is set to resume tomorrow, and is set for Wednesday.
“[The strike] is a terrible situation, and we’re going to keep fighting until the last minute,” said Cabarrans School Board member John Johnson.
This is a developing story.
More to come.
