This year, TSC, citing hard economic times, offered unions a non-monetary 2021-2025 collective bargaining agreement (CBA), which teachers have protested.

 

The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC), which announced a two-year freeze on civil servants’ pay rise in July, have explained that the extra money factored in the ministries’ budgets is for the annual salary increments

 

The salary boom has been announced when it is least expected after the Teacher Union signed a non-monetary 2021-2025 CBA which angered many teachers across the country. It is important to note that this budget is subjected to parliament

 

The CBA was signed between the Commission and the three union, Kenya National Union of Teachers, KNUT, Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers, KUPPET, and the Kenya Union of Special Needs, KUSNET, in July 13th 2021.

 

Currently, Chief Principal who heads institutions in National and extra county schools with over 1000 is the highest-paid teacher. They fall under Grade D5. The lowest-paid principals take home 131,380 shillings while the highest earner in this group pockets 157,656 shillings.

 

The lowest earner teachers are those under Grade B5, T-Scale 5, and teaching primary school. These teachers take home between 21,756 and 27,195 shillings.
