Good News To Teachers And Civil Servants On Salary Review As MPs Make This Move

Teachers employed by teachers Service Commission, civil servants under public service Commission and other public workers in ministries and departments have a reason to smile over Payrise.

This follows a decision by Parliament to revoke a decision by salaries and remuneration Commission that had frozen Payrise.

Mid this year, the commission froze salary reviews citing harsh economic times amidst ever Increasing wage bill.

The decision was also informed by conditions attached to loans extended to Kenya by international lenders.

The move by members of Parliament to overturn SRC's freeze will be good news to public workers especially coming at a time when the cost of living has gone up.

All public Officers were set to sign new collective bargaining agreements this year following the full implementation of the previous ones.

For instance, teachers had to sign a non-monetary CBA with only enhanced maternity and paternity leaves with their employer TSC citing the salary freeze by SRC as the reason.

It now remaims to be seen whether public workers like teachers who have already signed a CBA with TSC will have salary component incorporated in the CBA.
