KUPPET Nakuru ready for Monday Strike

31 August 2012, 15:37 Ben Ali

The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) Nakuru County branch has expressed its full participation in the next week’s teachers’ strike.
Speaking to in Nakuru town, the branch’s executive secretary Gakau Mbugwa has said they shall be joining teachers around the country in crying foul against historical salary discrimination practiced by the government to teachers.
The strike follows the government's failure to respond to the teachers salary and allowances demand. The union says that recently all civil servants’ salaries were increased teachers were sidelined.
“Three years down the line nothing has happened to show government’s efforts to fulfill the promise they made on salary increment,” he said.
The 170 teachers also advised parents not to take their children back to schools as they will only resume teaching after government addresses their plight.

Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary General David Okuta, has called for the suspension of all school programs by next week Monday unless the government honours pledges made in a 1997 agreement.

According to the agreement gazetted as Legal Notice 534, teachers were set to receive housing allowance at 50 percent, 20 percent for medical and 10 percent for transport allowance.

Teachers are also demanding a 300 percent increment on salaries and allowances. They also want responsibility allowances to be paid to school heads, deputies and heads of departments. KNUT officials have also called off all annual general meetings scheduled for September in its branches countrywide.
