No pay for teachers regardless, Ruto says

05 October 2015, 08:21 `William Korir

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto says that teachers will not be paid their supposed pay increase by the government as they have to abide by a wage structure.

Ruto Sunday thanked teachers for finally heading back to class after a 5 week long strike that had paralyzed the education sector but urged them to relate to the current government pay structure.

" We have to be realistic in that there is a certain wage structure that needs to be adhered to," he said.

" There are institutions that are trying to harmonize the government pay structure and ensure there is harmonization of salaries and we have to respect them," he added.

Teachers have been demanding a 50/60% pay increase given to them by the Labour Court but Ruto says there is need for Constitutionally protected offices to play their role.

" There are bodies like the Salaries and Remuneration Commission that have roles to play and we will let them do so," he added.

Teachers have suspended their strike for 90 days in the hope that there will be an agreement reached with government over their pay and have vowed to continue with it when the 90 day period lapses if there will be no agreement.
