Teachers extend boycott owing to TSC gaffe

Nairobi - KNUT Secretary General, Wilson Sossion has urged teachers not to report to work amid a ruling by the Employment and Labour Relations Court on Friday suspending the teachers' strike for 90 days.
Judge Nelson Abuodha in his ruling, said that the need for the strike to be suspended was to allow national examinations take place and also give children who have a constitutional right to learn get back to class.
"We want students, who suffer the most here not to be secluded and to allow them get back to school," he stated.

Sossion, who was of the opinion that the suspension should not be at the expense of teachers, argues that the court ruling is impotent since an appeal filed by TSC against the teacher’s pay rise is still pending, The Standard reports.
In his view, suspending the strike for 90 days means that the strike continues in January, something he said they are not ready for and called on the government to offer a lasting solution to the impasse.
