The teachers have immediately asked their employer, the Teachers Service Commission, for a pay raise of 60%. (TSC).

Teachers will not settle for anything less than a pay hike, according to the announcement made on Wednesday by their umbrella group, the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut).

According to Knut Secretary General Collins Oyuu, this union has previously requested a review of the 2021–2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement in a proposal to TSC (CBA).

The CBA has not increased teacher salaries for the last ten years.

“It is  true that we signed a CBA that increased the number of days our female teachers could take off for maternity leave and included a paternity leave for our male teachers, but with the current economic difficulties, teachers need financial advantages and are asking for a pay raise,” said Mr. Oyuu said.

Two weeks ago, TSC and the teachers’ union traveled to Naivasha to talk about, among other things, the potential for revisiting the CBA.

According to The Knut, President Uhuru Kenyatta’s declaration of a salary increase for state personnel during Labor Day celebrations was proof that the country’s economy had fully recovered from the shocks brought on by the Covid-19 epidemic.

According to Mr. Oyuu, the TSC should suggest the teacher’s salary request to the Salaries and Remuneration Commission in order to ensure that instructors obtain compensation increases as soon as feasible (SRC).
