Teachers unions differ on signing of 4-year CBA deal

12 November 2015, 09:37 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - Differences have emerged among Teachers Unions in Bungoma County over President Uhuru Kenyatta's directive that they withdraw all the pending court cases after signing a four-year CBA deal.

Whereas Bungoma Kuppet executive Secretary Augustine Luketelo says the deal is good and will help teachers, the region Knut Secretary Ken Nganga says the deal will kill teachers unions.

Luketelo said that after signing the deal, it will protect teachers in future strikes.

“Teachers have suffered for a long time; let them be paid their September salaries and other dues so that they can feed and educate their families," said Luketelo.

Luketelo called on the teachers to support the government to avoid future suffering.

Nganga says that it is a government ploy to cheat teachers into signing the deal to pave way for intimidation in future.

“As a union, we urge our National leaders to be careful in whatever they are doing so that it does not weaken the union and affect the teachers. The government is very clever, why did it dismiss our case when we were demanding for the 50 - 60 percent salary increment?” posed Nganga.

He said that Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has been threatening to sack striking teachers and went ahead to deny them their September salaries and thus cannot be trusted.
