Defend bus drivers' right to wear her colours
Marcia Carty, a Metroline driver at the Perivale garage has been told that she is not allowed to wear a head covering in the colours of her Rastafarian belief (red, gold and green).

We think this is discrimination—in the same way that we would if a Muslim woman driver was told she could not wear a head scarf. Marcia feels that for her to practice her religion, she needs to wear her colours—we support her in this choice.
Multiculturalism is something to be celebrated, not hidden.

Marcia had to face a grievance meeting with the company, which she sadly lost. It is time for other drivers and all those who support her to take a stand.

We call on London Mayor, Sadiq Khan to intervene to help Marcia.

Marcia should not be forced to choose between her religious beliefs and her job—that’s discrimination.
We support her and call for her immediate return to work.
