The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has halted the strike threat they had issued about 2 weeks ago due to salary issues.
This comes after the Salaries and Remuneration Commission’s (SRC) offered a salary deal to the teachers.
It is claimed that this has been done to allow the National Examination which is set to begin in 3 weeks' time to commence and run smoothly.
In a letter addressed to the Teachers Service Commission CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia on Friday, KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion stated that they have already registered the salary dispute with the Ministry of Labor.
He also urged the TSC boss to state clear dates for resolving the salary conflict.
" We hereby retract our letter to the CS and urge that you give strict and clear timelines of undertaking the salary negotiations " The letter read.
This is a possible indication that there is something good for teachers on the way coming.
