In order to implement the 2021–2025 collective bargaining agreement, the Kenya National Union of Teachers has now disclosed that it will advocate for a pay increase of 60% for teachers in all cadres.
Speaking in Kisumu today, KNUT secretary general Collins Oyuu disclosed that some teachers had remained in a single job group for years as a result of the difficult economic crisis, while earlier CBAs had prioritized greater compensation for school heads and other administrators.
Oyuu was speaking in Kisumu, where the union will be having its annual delegates conference beginning Wednesday, where over 2000 members from 115 branches will be represented.
Other issues to be discussed in the NDC include the delocalisation of teachers, criteria for promotion of teachers as well as the formation of a teachers’ appeal tribunal to handle disciplinary cases against teachers
These include interdictions, demotions and promotion of teachers among a raft of teacher related problems,” he said.
He welcomed the planned hiring of 30,000 teachers by the TSC but said still, the state should hire more to fill the teachers’ shortage across the country
