Labour CS Yatani’s quick move that will stop teachers strike called by KNUT SG Mr. Sossion

Labour CS Ukur Yatani has decided to cool down the higher temperatures in the education sector a day after KNUT SG Sossion threatened to paralyze learning in public schools next term.

CS Yatani quick move comes after teachers’ union accused Teachers Service Commission, TSC, of subjecting teachers to unfavorable working condition.

“Merry Christmas… but we can’t promise you that the new year will start well… parents should adjust their budgets very well because Christmas will be extended into the new year,” Knut Secretary-General Wilson Sossion said as he announced teachers strike that will commence next on 2nd January 2019.

Teacher promotion, teacher delocalisation or transfer program, performance contracting system (TPAD) and Teachers Professional Development Modules are among the issues teachers are protesting.

In a press statement, CS Yatani has urged KNUT and TSC to settle issues affecting teachers amicably through dialogue.

“I urge parties as I had advised early- Kenya national Union of teachers KNUT, Teachers Service Commission TSC and Ministry of Education to engage in honest dialogue so that they may secure amicable solution by consensus and avoid disruption of school calendar,” said CS Yatani.

He further reveald that a conciliation committee has been formed to report back in 30 days time.

“I have today 20th December, 2018, appointed by a conciliation committee to be  chaired by Charles Maraga, as provided under section 70(2) of labour relation act of 2007 to assist the parties to resolve the impasse and report back to me in 30 days,” added CS Yatani.
