After signing a non-monetary CBA last year with excuses of covid-19 effects, teachers unions are now pushing for a new CBA to factor the monetary component into the 2021-2025 CBA. The unions argue that the economy has improved and that TSC and SRC need to fulfil their promise that the CBA would be revised once the economy has improved.
To this far, KNUT and KUPPET have separately invited the teachers service commission for salary increment talks and in one of the letters in response, TSC has accepted to meet the unions.
The Kenya union of post primary education teachers, KUPPET, has drafted its proposal, and is still pushing for an increment of 30-70 %, alongside additional allowances like risk allowances.
The rival sister union, KNUT is however pushing for a lower increment of 16-20%.
Below are the risk allowances that KUPPET is pushing for each job group in its counter proposal to the TSC.
