Teachers Service Commission has for a second time invited Kenya Union of Special Needs Education Teachers (KUSNET) for a meeting that will chart the way forward for 2021-2026 Collective Bargaining Agreement(CBA).
“The Commission has the pleasure to invite the Kenya Union of Special Needs Education Teachers (KUSNET) to a meeting to be held from Tuesday, 13 July, 2021 at Sifari Park Hotel, Nairobi,” said TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia.
In a letter seen by Jambo News, TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia has further informed KUSNET Secretary General, Mr James Torome, that the commission will front the following Agenda:
- Declaration of conflict of Interest; and
- Negotiating and signing the 2021–2025 CBA.
Late last month, the commission held a meeting with three unions representing teachers; KNUT, KUPPET and KUSNET.
The meeting ended unfruitfully after TSC only offered to increase maternity and paternity leave days, and extended a promotions reprieve for teachers in hardship areas.
The commission has also offered to grant teachers a pre-adoptive leave of 45 days from the date of adoption.
The commission also tabled a consideration to transfer couples to schools near each other (if both are teachers) subject to availability of vacancies.
TSC did not factor in salary pay-rise for teachers and this angered officials from the unions.
