KNUT unrelenting on pay rise, warns TSC

11 September 2014, 18:58 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT says it will not be forced into a compromise on demands set before the government.

The union was in talks Thursday with the Ministry of Education as well as the Teachers Service Commission TSC over a 300% pay increase that it has demanded be paid immediately.

If not delivered, they have promised industrial action after the expiry of a 21 day ultimatum which expires next week.

Secretary General Wilson Sossion has said that KNUT will not compromise on talks, saying that they had done the same with the government last year and now wants payment enacted.

" We will not sit here and be made t o look like fools. We have been at this point on a number of occasions and we will not go back on the demands made, he said.

He added that the only ones causing issues at the moment are the government and called on them to stop mind games.

" We have been used in the past and even now, there are plenty of games being played here. We are not going to play such games, commenting on the claim by government that other teachers bodies KNUT aside are also in talks over the pay-rise.

" There are other briefcase bodies here that the government is frustrating us with and we will not agree with that, he added.

Sossion was referring to rival union the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers KUPPET which is also in purported  negotiations with the government.

KNUT wants the comprehensive pay agreement signed last year honoured or else they say they will go on strike, a move which could compromise the soon to arrive national examinations which kick off in October.
