Court blocks teachers’ strike, Stops transfer of Union officials

The labour and relation court has blocked the nationwide teachers strike that was set to begin tomorrow.

Justice Bryan Ongaya directed teachers to resume work on Wednesday as conciliation talks continue between the KNUT officials and TSC.

At the same time the court asked the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to consider appeals by head teachers.

Judge Byram Ongaya requested the commission to reconsider its decision to transfer any union officials affected by the mass transfer of more than 3,000 headteachers.

“Pending an agreement on the transfer of union officials beyond the geographical limits of the branch they are elected to serve, the decision to transfer is, hereby, stayed,” he said.

The case will be mentioned again on January 17 to report on the progress of reconciliation proceedings.

Promotion, transfers, performance contracting and professional development modules are key issues that had prompted KNUT to call for teachers strike.
