Teachers are still on strike, says Sossion

25 September 2015, 13:01 William Korir

Nairobi - Despite the Industrial Court saying that the teachers strike is over, KNUT boss Wilson Sossion has told teachers to stay put.

The Industrial Court announced Friday that the strike be suspended for 90 days to allow an arbitrary team negotiate between the two sides over the current impasse.

But Sossion says that the strike is still on until the union gives further direction.

" The strike is still on. We still have to go back Monday for directions from the Judge and our lawyers before making any move," he said outside the Milimani Law Courts Friday.

He urged teachers to stay put.

" Teachers have suffered for too long and we want to ensure that whatever move we make is for their good and the good of the union," he added.

Judge Nelson Abuodha in his ruling, said that the need for the strike to be suspended was to allow national examinations take place and also give children who have a constitutional right to learn get back to class.

" We want students, who suffer the most here not to be secluded and to allow them get back to school," he stated.

Sossion was of the same opinion.

" We agree that the judge was fair in thinking about the students and we agree with it but it must not be at the expense of the teachers too," he stated bullishly.

Teachers are expected to be back in class Monday.
