Teachers will now smile all the way towards the bank come july

Teachers are one of the majority of government employees under The Teachers Service Commission. They are the most poorly paid and over the years we have seen them on the streets demanding the harmonization of their salary. Back in 2017, The TSC together with the unions had agreed on the collective bargain agreement that ran up to 2021. This however benefitted the heads and teachers in senior positions neglecting the classroom teachers.

The unions had started engaging the TSC into talks about the second phase of CBA that is to run from 2021 to 2025 where they demanded a pay rise of 70 percent, however, the TSC gave their proposal of 32% increment for those in the job group C3 and below and 16% for those in C4 and above. This excited teachers because the majority lie in C3 and below-that is the classroom teacher. TSC also talked of harmonizing allowances.

The teachers' hopes were killed when the SRC made it clear that there is no money. The unions were not late to issue a strike threat. However, the TSC today has promised her employees that they will begin the talks in two weeks and that means teachers will have their salaries increased as per the agreement.
