Hardship Allowances Will Be Given to All Teachers in This County, Senate Investigation

Hardship Allowances Will Be Given to All Teachers in This County, Senate Investigation

Senators have opened investigations into claims that teachers in Taita Taveta County received unfair hardship payments.

In a petition to the Senate, the Taita Taveta Branch of the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) argued that under Legal Notice No. 534 of 1997, all county teachers are entitled to hardship compensation.

The union also cited a collective bargaining agreement from July 13, 2021, between the Teachers Service Commission, KNUT, the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers, and the Kenya Union of Special Needs Education Teachers, which also established hardship allowances for all county-employed teachers.

Despite the existence of these rules, the Taita Taveta Branch of KNUT asserted that not all teachers in the county of Taita Taveta are receiving hardship payments. They specifically mentioned that teachers in Voi and portions of Mwatate Subcounties are receiving hardship allowances while others are not.

Included among these prohibited areas are Voi Sub-County’s John Mark Mwanjumwa Secondary School, Mbololo Secondary School, Ronge Zone of Mwatate Subcounty, Taveta Subcounty, and Taita Subcounty.

The union claimed that in order to overcome issues like the insecurity brought on by roving wild animals from Tsavo National Park, the high cost of water, and impassable roads, teachers in these locations need hardship compensation.

They also mentioned the scarcity of rental accommodation close to schools, the heavy workload brought on by staff shortages, the high expense of medical treatment brought on by the lack of medical facilities, and the communication problems brought on by inadequate network coverage in these areas.

The petition noted that there is no rationale for selectively allocating hardship allowances to particular locations in Taita Taveta County while excluding others because these places have similar climatic, topographical, security, and social qualities.

The organization further emphasized that this prejudice in the distribution of hardship payments deters teachers from accepting posts in regions that are not eligible for such allowances, aggravating staffing problems in schools.

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) should provide hardship payments to all teachers employed in Taita Taveta County without additional prejudice, KNUT urged the Senate to endorse.
