‘Machoozi!’ and additional salary deductions for TSC intern teachers

‘Machoozi!’ and additional salary deductions for TSC intern teachers

Concerns have been expressed by the intern teachers employed by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) under the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) regarding recent salary deductions made by their employer.

Several intern instructors have experienced substantial financial hardship as a result of these deductions, which also include housing fund contributions for arrears in July. It’s important to note that this is the second time that intern instructors have had their compensation reduced without a proportional rise.

A Ksh. 360 deduction was made from each employee’s salary in July of this year to cover the National Social Security Fund (NSSF). A 1.5% deduction from their total stipends, designated for the housing fund, is shown on their most recent payslip.

Therefore, after these deductions, primary intern teachers who generally receive a monthly stipend of Ksh 15,000 are left with roughly Ksh 14,000. Interns in junior secondary positions make about Ksh 18,000 after deductions from their monthly salary of Ksh 20,000.

Teachers Unions Express Disapproval of Flat Rate Salary Deductions, which You Should Read

According to the most recent payouts, primary intern teachers only received Ksh. 12,570, compared to Ksh. 17,570 for their junior secondary colleagues. These salaries are much less than what they are used to receiving.

Given the current inflation and cost of living, this recent development may dissuade prospective teachers from considering internships due to the low salary.

Due to the poor income, many teachers have begun choosing Board of Management (BOM) jobs in schools instead of internships, which offer better pay and more welfare support. While teachers with permanent contracts have benefited from favorable compensation improvements, intern instructors have not.

To help with the implementation of the new curriculum, the commission has already started placing 20,000 newly hired teacher interns in classrooms, with 18,000 placed in junior secondary schools and 2,000 in primary schools.

Knut, Kuppet, and Kusnet, three teacher unions, were unable to protect intern teachers from these additional deductions, and negotiations did not result in a change to the interns’ stipends.
