KUPPET hits out at KNUT over teachers decampment

18 September 2013, 11:03 Wilshere

Nakuru - Officials of Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has hit out at KNUT for allegedly poaching their teachers.

KUPPET officials pointed out that KNUT have secretly been recruiting teachers to their union.

Speaking on Tuesday during the launch of a two-day school representatives’ consultative meeting in Nakuru, KUPPET National chairman, Omboko Milemba, said that it was wrong for KNUT to recruit new members from their union.

“We know some teachers have been recruited to the other union and we want to tell them what they are doing is not right,” he remarked.

Omboko observed that there are stipulated rules and regulations that have to be followed when members wants to decamp to the other union.

He said that one is required to give a two months notice to the union in a written form before moving into another union.   

“We have some rules that must be followed and be adhered to before just moving into the other union” he said

The chairman added that all the forms that were filled during the recent industrial action were null and void adding that KUPPET do not recognise them.

He added that KUPPET is ready to battle out KNUT's violation of the labour relation Act in court.

He said that KNUT should not boast of having successfully bargained for harmonisation of commuter and house allowances as it was a brainchild of KUPPET.

“We are more than ready to go to industrial court to face KNUT because they have gone against the law,” he said.

He further said that KNUT should keep off the KES 16.8 billion commuter allowances that KUPPET pushed for during the recent teachers strike.
