Teachers who do not have any union membership will have to pay a certain fee after the latest announcement which made by TSC on Wednesday.
According to reports, more than 190,000 teachers both in primary and secondary schools lack unions and are set to be victims of this move by the TSC. The teachers' unions in the country include Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), Kenya Union of Post Primary Teachers (KUPPET) and the Kenya Union of Specual Needs Education among others.
The teachers will have to pay a fee which is equivalent to 2% of their basic salary. For instance, a teacher with a basic salary of ksh 50,000 will be paying ksh 1000 as the fee. This will be applied on the salary of the teachers who left KNUT.
According to reports, KUPPET is going to charge a fee of 1.45% of the basic salary. In this case, a teacher with a basic salary of ksh 50,000 will pay ksh 700 as the fee.
