Teachers strike as schools reopen
03 September 2012, 13:01
Nairobi - Daily Nation reports that as schools reopened for the third term on Monday, teachers made good their threat to stay out of work until a salary increment deal negotiated 15 years ago is implemented.
Primary and secondary schools opened countrywide, but students idled in the lawns basking the morning sun as their teachers dug in with their demand for a pay rise. Learning in private schools, however, kicked off smoothly.
The teachers strike defies an order by Industrial Court Judge Pyrum Ongaya issued on Friday following an application by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) claiming the strike was unconstitutional.
