DETROIT — The American Federation of Teachers said teachers at Detroit’s
Cesar Chavez Academy have voted to unionize the charter school.
The school is run by the Phoenix-based Leona Group, which operates in Arizona,
Florida, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
The union said Thursday that teachers, counselors and social workers voted
88-39 to make the AFT their bargaining agent.
The Associated Press left phone and email
messages for the Leona Group after business hours Thursday.
No one answered the school’s phone Thursday night.
