Why Sossion does not want performance contracts for teachers

12 February 2016, 19:18 William Korir

Nairobi - KNUT boss Wilson Sossion has promised that teachers will go on strike if they are forced to sign performance contracts.

Sossion says that the contracts are unrealistic since there is no parameter to judge performance with and that the Teachers Service Commision will victimize teachers using the said deals.

" The contracts are not feasible. We will not agree with them at all. I have said before and will say again. We will go on strike if forced to sign. No teachers should agree to," he said Friday.

He termed the move to shore up performance contracts as selfish and seeking to look for problems that are not in existence.

" We know that the TSC is looking for ways to molest teachers and this is the latest. It is totally unnaceptable," he added.

Sossion said the decision required proper consultation and legislation and urged TSC to withdraw the contracts and remove offensive clauses so they are not used to victimise teachers in future.

The KNUT boss asked teachers not to sign the contracts which have "serious implications", adding they will "not get promotions once they attain certain academic qualification".

" This is a ploy to discipline teachers. This cannot be allowed. We cannot and should not agree," he added.

He further asked TSC to recognise and promote graduates unconditionally, saying many teachers were stuck in the same position despite advancing their education through loans. 

TSC says that all teachers that will not sign the contracts will have chosen to quit and that others who agree with the new rules will be drafted in.
