Teachers to Get Salary Increase As TSC-KNUT Meeting Unlocks Pay

The new Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), Collins Oyuu, has said that knut members who missed salary increment during the third and fourth phases of implementation of 2017-2021 CBA will have something to smile about.

All Knut members who missed out on these benefits will now enjoy the deal following a successful meeting with TSC that unlocked the pay.

This means that Knut members will have a total pay rise of between Sh8,000 and Sh15,000, back dated to cover the last two years (2019 and 2020) they missed out as their counterparts in other unions enjoyed salary increase.

At the same time, some of the teachers will also be promoted after they missed out on the opportunities when the rest of their colleagues were moved up during implementation of the CBA

Full implementation of 2017-2021 CBA saw teachers who were previously on job group B5 earning a basic salary of Sh21,345, moved to C1 with a salary increment of about Sh8,000.

Allowances for these teachers were also increased tremendously.  They enjoyed a new house allowance of Sh4,200, commuter of Sh4,000 and hardship allowance of Sh8,200.

It is important to note that head teachers and their deputies who were Knut members also lost greatly under the last phase of the CBA

For example, a head teacher who was earning Sh45,000 in June 2019 now earns Sh62,272 as their Knut counterparts salaries remained unchanged

The good news is that teachers who are KNUT members will receive their salaries after the new KNUT SG, collins Oyuu, made successful meeting with TSC.

Fresh details have also emerged that Teachers’ employer, TSC, has invited the unions to a second meeting slated for next week on Tuesday to continue the botched Collective Bargaining Agreement(CBA) talks

The previous meeting held on June 29th, 2021 hit a snag after unions rejected a counteroffer that lacked monetary component.

According to sources familiar with this writer, all the three unions, Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut), Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) and the Kenya Union of Special Education Teachers (Kusnet) have been invited to the meeting
