KNUT threatening to strike if demands not met

11 September 2014, 23:12 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Teachers will be receiving advance payments to buy furniture, fridges among other household items if their new demands from the government succeed.

The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has availed a document with 37 demands that the union wants fulfilled to call off strike threats.

The union officials said if government does not meet their new demands they will ask members to boycott duties.

A document with KNUT Nyeri county executive secretary, Mutahi Kahiga teachers want ‘disturbance allowance of one months’ salary upon unsolicited transfer even if it is within the County’.

“Entertainment allowance, accommodation and night allowances, motor vehicle, children’s education allowances at 10 percent of basic salary per child up to three children,” the document indicated.

Mutahi said teachers receive a house allowance of KES.3,000 which he faulted stating that cost of living is very high and the amount ought to be increased.

He added that a teacher-pupil ratio should be 1:25 and not more for better performance.

The union further wants teachers to be getting a salary advance for first appointment, an advance payment to purchase motor vehicles and houses and a leave for political service (60 days leave without pay).
