Government threatens to sack striking teachers

03 September 2015, 12:57 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The government has said it will sack striking teachers, threatening to have them struck off the payroll for absconding duty.

The Teachers Service Commision TSC said Thursday that a move by teachers to go on strike was illegal and it would cost them their jobs unless they rescind the decision.

A statement from the commission indicated that the strike was not properly called because the Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT and the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers KUPPET have not served TSC with a notice as required in law.

KNUT Secretary Wilson Sossion said that the unions did not have to tell the TSC about the strike as they were aware of the court proceedings.

It directed teachers to report to schools immediately, failure to which action will be taken against individuals.

" No strike notice has been issued as per the law. Whatever reason given for the strike is still subject to an appeal in the Court of Appeal. Any strike action emanating from the current circumstances is illegal and unprotected," the statement said.

" Individual teachers who boycott work or engage in unprofessional conduct will certainly suffer consequences in accordance to the Teachers Service Commission Act and the Code of Regulations for Teachers ".

But teachers have stated that they will not go to class until their 50-60% pay-rise is effected.

" There will be no class and no intimidation," a number of teachers interviewed by News24 a Nairobi's Moi Avenue Primary School said.
