Teachers not privy to new NSSF charges

10 December 2013, 09:29 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Newly elected KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion says that the proposed NSSF charges are illegal and that teachers will not accept them.

He argued that there was no basis for the charges and that the teachers union was not consulted before the proposed charges were drawn up.

The 2013 NSSF bill proposes a 6% monthly deduction from every employee as compared to a KES 200 flat charge that currently exists.

Sossion argued that teachers deserved better pay and that any hope of implementing the new charges without better pay would be hurting the already struggling teachers.

" The new charges are unacceptable and teachers will not allow any extra charges to their salaries unless the changes we want to be made in the first place are added, he said in Nakuru Monday during the KNUT annual General meeting where he was elected Secretary General.

He also called for the government to promote thousands of deserving teachers who had been by passed and were due for higher positions and better pay.

Sossion said his organization expected over 20,000 teachers to be promoted by the beginning of 2014.
