Teacher Service Commission (TSC) has revealed names of five members who will engage KNUT during the five-day retreat later this month. The retreat is meant to iron out issues that have emerged in the course of implementation of 2017-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement CBA.
TSC will be represented by Mr. Franklin Choge(finance), Mr. Simeon Omare (Human resource management), Mr. Gabriel Mathenge (Quality assurance & standards), Mrs Lucy Mugambi (Staffing) and Mr. Oyucho Timon (Legal advisor).
KNUT was that first one to reveal members who put forward teachers’ grievances. Among issues that need urgent address are Career progression, promotion of teachers with higher qualifications, Teacher appraisal and delocalization policy.
TSC and KNUT have always differed publicly on matters pertaining teachers especially promotion and mode of teacher appraisal. TPAD and PC have not gained ground since its inception in 2016 and teachers have registered their dissatisfaction terming it as time wasting and too much documentation. Contrarily, TSC has overwhelmingly praised TPAD. According to the teacher employer, TPAD has reduced absenteeism and increased teacher effectiveness and professionalism.
