Teachers unionize at PA Cyber, state's largest

April 15, 2014

MIDLAND, Pa. (AP) — Teachers at Pennsylvania's largest cyber-charter school have voted to unionize.

The Pennsylvania State Education Association says teachers at Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School have voted 71-34 to unionize.

The school based in Midland, Beaver County, has 115 teachers and draws more than 11,000 students from districts across the state.

The National Labor Relations Board must still certify the vote which was taken from March 25 and April 7, before the results were released over the weekend.

The school, also known as PA Cyber, is a public K-12 school.

The union and its teachers say they're underpaid by Beaver County standards. School officials say the teachers are in the middle of the pack compared to other teachers in the county, and that their salaries should be compared more broadly because many teachers live outside the county.
