Government moves to Supreme Court to stop teachers pay increase

05 August 2015, 18:33 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The government has moved to the Supreme Court to contest a ruling by the labour court to hand teachers a 50-60% pay increase.

The Teachers Service Commission TSC Wednesday, filed a petition at the Supreme Court seeking to stop the ruling awarding teachers the salary increment.

The petition, which has been certified as urgent, comes a week after the Court of Appeal upheld a decision by the Industrial and Labour Relations Court to award the increment.

The increment is pending the hearing of a case disputing it by the government set for September 22.

Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi had earlier stated that the government would not hesitate to go to court to appeal the ruling, saying that it was not feasible.

" We will go to court because the ruling has overlooked several procedures usually held in such matters," he stated.

He had argued that in making the ruling the court had overlooked both the TSC and Sarah Serem led Salaries and Remuneration Commission SRC, which was unconstitutional.

On their part, teachers led by the Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT has threatened to go on strike if the government revokes the ruling or does not heed to it.

" We will go on strike. Make no mistake about that," KNUT boss Wilson Sossion stated over the weekend.
