The Teachers Service Commission, Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) and Kenya Union of Post Primary Teachers (KUPPET) had a moved closer to having a good deal in the presence of Salaries and Remuneration Commission. The substantive Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) essentially had detailed document possessing specific salary and allowance increments for the 2021 – 2025 period.

The revealed Teachers Service Commission proposal indicated a significant share of increments at the rate of 32% for lower grade teachers. Then 16% for those in administrative positions, which is a slight increase compared to the last CBA. The same CBA proposed increase of teachers’ allowances but the Salaries and Remuneration commission opposed it.

The teachers unions earlier on protested against Teachers Service Commission for tabling their proposals to the Salaries and Remuneration Commission without their input. The matter was amicably resolved then KUPPET and KNUT were allowed to submit theirs. The Kenya National Union of Teachers was proposig an increase of between 120% and 200%. Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) was looking for upscaling between 30% and 70% of the basic salary. All the proposals hit a deadlock after the treasury refused to adopt either of the proposals including the one from the Teachers service commission.

The Teachers Union to serve beyond retirement as CBA talks flops
Kenya Union of Post Primary Teachers (KUPPET) held the National Governing Council meeting last week demanding for further negotiations with the employer or else an industrial action to be taken. So far neither the Teachers Service Commission nor the treasury has said anything on the same. It’s clear the government is not ready to implement the CBA.
