California's public labor-relations board has agreed to seek court relief to prevent interference in teacher-unionization efforts at a popular Los Angeles-based charter school chain.

The ruling concerns a divisive bid to organize the 27 campuses of the Alliance College-Ready Public Schools. A group of Alliance teachers in March sought representation from United Teachers Los Angeles. Alliance has opposed unionization, including by setting up a website claiming that perks like performance bonuses could be in jeopardy under unionization.

UTLA requested the injunction to prevent what it alleges are anti-union practices. The charter-management organization claims that its activities fall within the law.
