DETROIT (WNEM) -

Thousands of Michigan school employees call on the state to return millions of dollars docked from their pay checks.

According to the Detroit News, 33,000 school employees signed petitions demanding the refund.

The request follows a court ruling that $550 million were wrongfully docked from paychecks to cover retirement benefits that weren't guaranteed.

The state has a little more than 40 days to decide if it will appeal the ruling.

Teachers and union leaders are asking the state to let it go.
