Knut to strike when schools open

20 August 2012, 06:15

Nairobi - The Standard reports that another bruising battle between teachers’ unions and government over salary increment and implementation of pending allowances is shaping up and may affect the reopening of schools in a fortnight.  

Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) on Sunday issued a statutory 14-day notice to Teachers Service Commission and Ministry of Labour, of their looming strike set for September 3 which coincides with the reopening of schools for third and final term of the year, which will be shorter because of the new regulations only the candidates should be in school when national exams are administered.

Knut’s strike call comes hot on the heels of another by rival Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) for its members to stay off work from September 5, two days after that of Knut members.
