Teachers sue government for non payment of September salaries

Nairobi - Teachers have sued the government for non payment of September salaries and failure to adhere to a court order detailing that they pay the salaries.

Through lawyer Paul Muite, the teachers stated that the government had gone back on an agreement by the Industrial Court and the teachers unions which was that as long as teachers go back to class, they will be paid their September salaries.

Muite sad that the decision by the government not to pay was discriminative and illegal at the same time.

" There is a clear intention to cripple the two unions, which is a violation of the law. We, therefore, ask the court to come out strongly on (the) Teachers Service Commission, as it did with the unions to suspend the strike," Muite told the court.

He asked judge Jorum Abuodha to work to ensure that teachers are paid their dues and immediately.

" Teachers need to be assured that they will be paid and as they are law abiding citizens and have agreed to follow the various rulings made by the court, then they should be favoured," he added.

Teachers are back in class after a 5 week strike which ended last month following a directive by the Industrial Court which asked that they and the Teachers Service Commision TSC take 90 days out to resolve the dispute which had arisen over a 50/60% pay increase granted to teachers by the Labour court.

The government has insisted that it has no money to pay teachers their increase.
