Teachers at California's largest online charter school have been given the go-ahead to unionize.

The Public Employment Relations Board ruled that California Virtual Educators represents teachers across the state who work for California Virtual Academies. The school serves a reported 15,000 students. Lawyers for the school had argued that CVE was actually 11 different unions.

The board's 77-page decision declared California Virtual Educators as the union representing the teachers, wherever they were located in California. It also certified the California Teachers Association, a National Education Association affiliate, as CVE's bargaining representative.
