TSC Says Teachers to wait longer for salary increment

Teachers may have to wait four years for a pay rise, as the employer has snuffed out any hopes of a review.

Teachers Service Commission (TSC) guidelines on the new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) affirmed that tutors will continue to enjoy old salary rates in a circular released to guide implementation of the 2021-2025 CBA.

Even allowances will be based on old rates, as was the case under the recently concluded Sh56 billion CBA, which increased teachers' pay.

TSC Chief Executive Nancy Macharia, on the other hand, says teachers will benefit from increased leave days and flexible transfers, which will help bring separated families closer together.

“To achieve the family values enshrined in the constitution, the commission shall consider transfer requests for married couples to appropriate stations/locations subject to availability of vacancies, the need for suitable replacement, existing staffing norms and proof of marriage among other factors,” a circular by Macharia says.

On July 13, 2021, the commission and three unions signed the CBA: Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET), and Kenya Union of Special Needs Education Teachers (KUSNET).

It will last until June 30, 2025. The unions stated at the time the CBA was signed they had agreed that TSC would revisit the salary component in July.
