Union to collect one million signatures to disband TSC

19 December 2015, 20:49 Ben Wafula

Nairobi - Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) has threatened to disband Teachers Service Commission (TSC) if they continue to frustrate teachers in the country.

Speaking during the 15th annual Delegates Meeting at Tourist hotel in Bungoma town, Kuppet national Chairman Omboko Milemba said that TSC has surrendered its independence to other organs of the government, noting that the commission cannot respect court orders and only waits for political statements to make decisions.

"The Commission should be warned that we can collect 1 million signatures in 10 days to remove its leadership if they continue to frustrate us," he said.

Milemba also said the Teachers Service Commission (TSC)is being used by the government to frustrate teachers.

"TSC is struggling to depict teachers as the enemy teachers; that is why instead of supporting teachers in their push for pay increase, they fighting us yet we are the ones who put them in place," said Milemba.

Over 600 delegates attended the three-day conference where issues such as insecurity, salary payments among others were discussed.

The Union Secretary General, Akelo Misori warned that they will re-look into the position of Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) and its advisory mandate, saying it only exists to frustrate workers by failing in its bargaining power.

"Unions are operating in a very tough political climate; the executive is out to stifle freedoms of trade unions and has found a conduit in Salaries and Remuneration Commission which has totally failed in its constitutional mandate," he said.

He said that they will look for other alternative funding options for their operations if their employer TSC continues to frustrate them.

He also called on Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) not to take any action on students over exam irregularities because it is the one that allowed examination leaking.
