KUPPET warns Kaimenyoi against appealing court ruling

02 July 2015, 09:07 Jane Zack

Nairobi - The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has warned Education education Cabinet Secretary, Jacob Kaimenyi against appealing the court ruling that awarded teachers 50 to 60 percent salary increment.

KUPEET national chairman, Omboko Milemba said teachers will paralyze education in the entire country if Prof. Kaimenyi will oppose the court ruling made on Tuesday this weeek.

He said the ruling was a win for all teachers in the country at large, adding that it was an indicator that teachers require good pay.

"It is a total win for teachers because the Teachers' Service Commission had left its work to other players like the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC), but has been told in black and white that it is its business to discuss the salaries with unions and not to rely on the advice or directions from other commissions," Milemba said.

Speaking to journalists in Busia town Wednesday, Milemba said Kaimenyi's appeal will derail the whole process and also delay teachers' salaries which they have been fighting for through several strikes.

"We are warning Kaimenyi not to make a mistake of going to court to appeal the court ruling which was made in favour of the teachers because it will derail the whole process," Milemba maintained.

He revealed that teachers are supposed to get their salary increment as from July 2013 when the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was signed by KUPPET.

"We are expecting that the TSC, government authorities and all other key players to be busy calculating to make sure that all that money reflects on teachers' pay slips as soon as possible," the chairman said.
