KNUT hold firm on strike, government plans talks

03 September 2014, 19:06 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Kenya National Union of Teachers says the planned strike will go on, but the government hopes talks will solve the current situation.

KNUT last week handed out a 21 day strike notice claiming a broken agreement between them and the government over a pay deal.

The government is keen for talks over the matter, with the Teachers Service Commision stressing that a strike at this moment in time is not plausible.

And according to sources, a meeting will take place Friday between the two parties to thrash out a deal.

Already, KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion has said that there will be no negotiations and that the government needs to firm up an agreement signed in November 2013.

" We will meet the government but only to discuss terms and not to talk about anything else, he said.

" The fact is that we have been at this point on other occasions and we do not want to dwell on matters we have previously spoken about, he added.

KNUT had agreed last year in the aftermath of a month long strike that paralysed learning and delayed national exams and results that they would earn improved salaries and allowances and they claim that the government is yet to play its part.
