Respecting the law important for teachers, Sossion says

05 October 2015, 09:23 William Korir

Nairobi - Respecting the law is paramount for teachers, irrespective of the circumstances of their current pay issue, KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion says.

Sossion was reacting to reports from some sections of teachers that he backed down too easy and allowed the government to bulldoze and dictate the teachers over their 50/60% pay-rise.

He was as always bullish that teachers will get their due but only through the right channels.

" We as teachers respect thew law and it will always remain that way," he stated.

" Yes, we all want to see the pay-rise come through but we also know that we are law abiding citizens and would like nothing more than to respect the law."

" The courts spoke in our favour on this case a number of times and now we have been asked to suspend the strike and we will do so in accordance with the law," he added.

The Industrial Curt has asked teachers to suspend their strike for 90 days which Sossion says does not mean that they have backed down.

" We have been given a means of dealing with this situation and seeking a solution and we are happy with it and awaiting to see how it goes and then re-evaluate," he added.

Teachers ended their strike Saturday and are expected to be back in class Monday.
