Teachers strike to continue as government, KNUT fail to agree

06 January 2015, 18:55 William Korir

Nairobi - The teachers strike will continue after talks between the government and KNUT failed to yield fruit.

Teachers have been on strike since schools re-opened Monday and have vowed to continue with it until the government comes up with a comprehensive pay package to sole a long standing pay dispute.

Teachers want their salaries and allowances lifted by as much as 300%, citing previous promises to improve their pay that have never been fulfilled.

The Teachers Service Commission TSC had earlier claimed that the calls by KNUT and other teachers unions were not feasible and must be compromised upon.

And once again, there was no concrete offer on the table from the government, forcing KNUT bosses to once again lament the lack of respect by the government.

" There was no offer on the table. I do not know why they are not respecting us. We want an offer and there has been none all this time. I wonder what they want us to do," KNUT chairman Mudzo Nzili said in a press conference Tuesday.

" We have reached a stalemate because they have refused to give us an offer," he added, stating that the strike will continue until respect prevails.

Labour bosses, representatives from TSC and KNUT as well as the national government were there in the meeting, which also saw Education PS Jacob Kaimenyi attend.

He did not comment on the stalemate after the meeting, instead stating that deliberations are ongoing.

" Talks will continue. We are confident a solution will be found," he said.

The Salaries and Remuneration Commission SRC has also said that the demands by teachers are not feasible in the current economic climate.

Learning across the country has been paralyzed by the absence of teachers, who have failed to heed a court order by the Parents Association ordering them to go to school.
