CTA wins ruling against for-profit charter K-12 Inc.

700 California Virtual Academies (CAVA) charter school teachers formerly without union representation have been granted exclusive bargaining rights to join California Teachers Association (CTA) as its newest affiliate chapter. Public Employment Review Board officials(PERB) ruled Wednesday that California Virtual Academies/K12 Incorporated’s claim they are 11 separate charter schools and thus employees should not be entitled to negotiate collectively was not supported. Instead, documents provided at the hearing showed “…scant evidence of true independent operations…”and led to the ruling allowing statewide bargaining for CAVA teachers.

CTA is pleased to invite its newest chapter of California Virtual Educators into the CTA/NEA family.
