Kenyan teachers who do not belong to any union will find it hard to enjoy the benefits that their KNUT and KUPPET counterparts will be getting from their employer (TSC). Reports show that if at all the teachers seek to become beneficiaries of any negotiated deals between the teachers and TSC, they will be required to pay an agency fee to related unions for such benefits.
This comes after the Kenya National Teachers' Union (KNUT) announced a meeting with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) which was meant to ratify their collective agreement (CBA). In the meeting, they signed na non-monetary CBA.
KNUT General Secretary Collins Oyuu said TSC had to revise its proposals as agreed. The new secretary general noted that the initial proposals were not financially beneficial to the members of the Union.
Oyuu said that Knut had woken up from a long sleep and will consider negotiations without street protests.
He announced that after a non-monetary meeting on the CBA, TSC through its Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia would consider increasing teachers' salaries through further negotiations.
