7–10% Teacher Pay Increase Rejected by KNUT and KUPPET

7–10% Teacher Pay Increase Rejected by KNUT and KUPPET

Both the Knut and Kuppet have rejected the most recent salary raise announced by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC).

Teachers and government workers would see salary increases of 7 to 10% over the course of two years, retroactive to July, according to SRC Chairperson Lyn Mengich.
Teachers, who fall under the category of low-paid public employees, would get a 10% wage raise split into two halves.

The growth was disputed by Collins Oyuu, the secretary general of Knut, by SRC calling it a drop in the ocean.

Taxes, in Oyuu’s opinion, are a way for the government to provide while simultaneously taking.

Knut wants a pay raise of 60%, while Kuppet wants one of 70%. The two unions are aiming to get the rise through a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

TSC has extended an invitation to the two teacher unions to take part in negotiations starting tomorrow at the Kenya School of Government in Lower Kabete, Nairobi.

TSC invited people to review the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) for 2021–2025 that it had signed with the unions, however it omitted compensation adjustments.

If Kuppet is successful, the Sh34,955 annual wage for instructors in Work Group C2 will grow to Sh74,279 per year.

According to Kuppet Secretary General Akello Misori, the union will reject the seven to ten percent salary increase recommended by the SRC.

We’ll focus on the areas where the CBA discussions came to a standstill. We won’t budge to new suggestions since we had already started talking about salaries, said Misori.

The lowest-paid teacher, who currently earns Sh34,955, would receive a maximum of Sh46,752 under the SRC plans.

For people earning Sh131,380 per month, the highest payment will be Sh168,691.

TSC will meet with teachers’ unions for wage review discussions

Misori claims that basic wage hikes, promotions, health benefits, and pension plans will be their top priorities.

He asserted that the reason for Kuppet’s demand of between 30 and 70 percent is the rising cost of living, which has reduced teachers’ disposable income.

Misori claims that instructors are struggling to cover their basic demands as a result of growing prices.

It is said by Misori that “recently implemented statutory deductions, such as the housing tax, superannuation pension scheme, and NSSF, have contributed to net income reduction, thereby affecting teachers’ productivity.”

He continued by saying that the majority of teachers have worked in the same field for a considerable amount of time, despite improving their academic status.

While many diploma teachers have remained in grade C2, many graduate teachers in employment Group C3 have remained in the same position for more than five years. We push for the formation of new businesses in C4 to facilitate professional advancement,” Misori said.

He claimed that by not applying the career advancement rules for promotions, the employer allowed the 46,550 instructors in the same occupational group to stagnate.
