Teachers set to strike as KNUT abandons pay talks

04 January 2015, 10:47 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Teachers are all set to go on strike Monday after their union KNUT dramatically abandoned pay talks.

A meeting arranged between teachers via their unions the Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT and the Kenya Post Primary Teachers Union KUPPET together with the Teachers Service Commission TSC failed to take place Saturday after KNUT abandoned the meeting.

KNUT bosses including Secretary General Wilson Sossion all switched their phones off, while TSC members waited patiently for them to come for the talks.

They did not attend them.

On the other hand, KUPPET officials did eventually attend the talks but walked out in a huff a few minutes later, terming the deal set in place by the TSC as insulting.

" That offer is an insult to teachers. If that is the story we have been talking about for years then we will not accept it, a KUPPET official that did not want to be named told News24.

KNUT have insisted that unless an satisfactory offer is put on the table, they will boycott classes set to kick off for the new year on Monday.

TSC though, in a rejoinder to the collapse of talks, said that they would not allow teachers disrupt learning in schools and that the terms would be open as usual Monday.

Teachers are calling for an increase in their basic pay to as much as 300% as well as allowances, which the government has promised over the years but failed to heed.
