Since March 2019, Teachers Service Commission,TSC has operated with only two commissioners after five TSC commissioners retired,making it hard for the commission to carry out its mandate, key being initiating discussions of the teachers' Collective Bargaining Agreement,CBA.The currrent CBA will end next month.
Last week President Uhuru appointed Jamleck Muturi and Timon Oyucho as chairperson and member of the commission for Nyanza region respectively.Even before this presidential appointment, Muturi had promised a number of changes he plans to do in TSC.
Being that two commissioners had been appointed in May 2020 to represent Central and Eastern regions,TSC has now attained a minimum quorum to carry out its activities effectively.This means negotiations for the 2021-2025 CBA are now possible.
It has now emerged that TSC commissioners will serve in office for equal number of years.The government strategically advertised two positions out of seven vacancies in the TSC to ensure standardization of retirement dates of the commissioners.
The standardization will ensure that there are no issues concerning lack of quorum in the commission in future,thus no TSC operations will be affected.
According to Nyeri town MP Wambugu Ngunjiri, standardization will completely solve the quorum issue.
The TSC CEO confirmed to the education and research committee of the national assembly that all the commissioners' term will expire in a standard way in future so that a fresh team assumes office at the same time.
