Sossion changes his mind, ready for teachers pay talks

20 November 2015, 14:13 William Korir

Nairobi - KNUT Secretary Wilson Sossion says he is ready for pay talks initiated by President Uhuru Kenyatta after initially saying he would not be involved.

Sossion had initially said he would not take part in talks saying that he was not sure if the government was holding the talks in good faith.

He had also insisted that the talks held over a new payrise structure between the teachers unions and the Teachers Service Commision be held at teachers' and not the government.

President Uhuru Kenyatta had called on teachers to get back on the drawing board with the TSC and seek a way forward, calling on there to be no more strikes which are aimed at crippling the education sector.

Sossion now says he will take part in the talks aimed at getting a Collective Bargaining Agreement CBA.

" We will meet and talk, we have agreed to talk as a union and I can only be a part of the talks in good faith," he said Friday after a KNUT Executive Committee meeting in Nairobi.

He stated that he was agreeing on the talks since there had been a clear roadmap to ensuring teachers do get a payrise they deserve.

" We have a roadmap. Now we hope that the TSC will not engage in games and ensure that the talks go smoothly," he added.

Teachers were recently denied a 50/60% payrise by the Court of Appeal after the government said it could not afford to pay and argued that there had been no talks prior to the award by the Labour court.
