Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary General Wilson Sossion yesterday said teachers had resorted to industrial action after the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) failed to respond to their concerns.
Transfer of teachers, new statutory deductions, pending promotions and disputed performance appraisals are among the grievances teachers accuse the TSC of ignoring.
Mr Sossion said the union had written to TSC to give the strike notice. “Teachers shall not resume duties until all outstanding matters are addressed to the satisfaction of all teachers,” he said
Sossion said the transfer of 3,094 teachers had not been approved by the Appointing Board, and were therefore irregular and must be recalled with immediate effect. He said the transfers would disrupt teaching services and families through a "punitive irregular policy of delocalisation".

“It is an illegal action by the employer. Removing the word delocalisation and at the same time transferring a huge number of teachers does not make a difference. It is still delocalisation as initially was,” he said.
Sossion said the union had records of families that had separated in the past because of such transfers, and also those threatened by similar actions, and had vowed not to allow it to happen this time.
He said President Uhuru Kenyatta had stopped the transfer of teachers and urged TSC to respect the directive.
Sossion said teachers were angered by the action of their employer for withdrawing the rights of promotion on merit, long service and new, relevant higher qualifications.
