KNUT Resolves To Pursue Payment Of Teachers Who Missed Out 3rd and 4th Phase Of 2017/21 CBA.
The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) delegates yesterday agreed that any union official who entered politics, whether elected or appointed, must resign from Knut.
They also urged the union to pursue payment for teachers who did not participate in the third and fourth phases of the 2017/21 Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Mr Oyuu stated that of the 16,342 teachers who missed out on the salary increase, approximately 12,000 have received the first tranche after notifying Knut.
He stated that the union is working with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to ensure that the remaining teachers are paid “as soon as possible.”
Wilson Sossion, the former Secretary-General, was also chastised by the Knut leadership for “interfering with the affairs of the union.”
Mr. Oyuu accused Mr. Sossion of claiming to be a member of Knut.
“A few teachers have been misled by the former secretary general into joining an outfit called Kenya Teachers Pressure Group. We strongly urge our members not to involve themselves in unconstitutional activities as this will only attract punitive measures,” Mr Oyuu said.
Yesterday, a group of members walked out of a special conference at the Kasarani Stadium Indoor Arena.
However, Secretary-General Collins Oyuu insisted that the union would implement the resolution, which was one of 15 proposed by the National Executive Council at previous meetings.
The proposal was included in Resolution No. 11, which authorized the NEC to make minor constitutional amendments. The most recent review was completed in December 2015, seven years later.
Prior to that, there were reviews in 2010 and 2013, despite the fact that the Constitution requires it to be reviewed every five years to capture emerging issues and to remove obsolete articles.
