Teachers and their employer are likely to agree by this week how to implement a salary rise awarded last year, a top union official said.
Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary–General Wilson Sossion said: “The CBA implementation schedule shall be agreed upon with the Teachers’ Service Commission and the unions and made public hopefully by June 20 ahead of Kenya Secondary School Heads Conference in Mombasa.”
Mr Sossion said the unions will endeavour to add it as an annex to the CBA signed last year.
“The implementation schedule is flexible and can be renegotiated from time to time in the best interests of teachers within the four year period by both parties,” the secretary-general explained
He assured teachers that the deal that they signed with their employer is the best.
“A Sh54 billion CBA is the biggest win ever for all teachers. We thank our members for their loyal support to the union,” said Mr Sossion.
The government on several occasions has assured teachers that the salary deal will be honoured.
