The Kenya National Union Of Teachers ( KNUT) and Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education for Teachers ( KUPPET) has proved beyond any reasonable doubt that they have failed to fight for teachers welfare. Many times teachers have complained of low pay but the two unions have lend the teachers deaf ears. Instead of the union fighting for the teachers welfare, they are the ones fighting the teachers. It was seen clearly when KNUT and KUPPET signed a non-monetary collective bargaining agreement for teachers.
Another evidence of failure of KNUT and KUPPET is when they allowed the Teachers Service Commission to introduce refresher courses for teachers. Teachers are supposed to register and pay fees for the same, something which will strain the teachers who are hard hit by the current economic situation. The failure of the two unions have attracted another group of concerned Kenyans. The group led by Martha Omollo say it will table a motion in Parliament to have KNUT and KUPPET done away with. That they will push the teachers to form another union which can hear their cries and fight for their rights.
