TSC Teachers’ Salaries 2023 Budget Changes and Impact

TSC Teachers’ Salaries 2023 Budget Changes and Impact

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has decided to implement new deductions for the fiscal year 2023–2024, which will prevent teachers from getting raises in July. These deductions will take effect on July 1.

Following an order from the court that suspended the execution of the Finance Act of 2023 and exempted teachers from the controversial 1.5 percent housing charge, a decision was taken to make this choice.

According to what our media team has seen, teachers finally saw deductions for the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) on their pay stubs. These deductions were made for the first time this year.

Unlike the previous rates of Sh200, the NSSF deductions were now a flat rate of Sh320 for all teachers, regardless of how much money they made. This rate change became effective in February, and there is a proposal to increase it to 6% of an individual’s wage, with a maximum of Sh18,000 per person.

It was determined by the teachers that the cash that had been deducted had been transferred into their accounts; however, the specifics of the deductions were not yet accessible on the TSC portal, which caused some confusion.

Additionally, the TSC has been contributing to the National Hospital Insurance Fund, which is also known as the NHIF. According to the proposed National Health Insurance Fund Regulations (2023), all workers will be required to make a contribution to the NHIF equal to 2.75 percent of their gross income.

When this change is finally implemented, the NHIF rate that is applied to teachers’ monthly wages will be higher than it was before the adjustment was made.

Concerns have been voiced by teachers about their salaries, which, as a matter of custom, are often raised in July in order to compensate for the effects of rising prices. However, a number of lecturers have expressed their displeasure with the fact that, even if the pay increase moved them up the job ladder, the benefits of the raise would be outweighed by the lecturers’ greater level of service.

Due to a delay in the Salaries and Remuneration Commission’s (SRC) process of reviewing salaries, public school teachers and other employees of the government did not receive the pay increase that was scheduled for this month.

There have been setbacks in the progress made toward examining the terms of reference for the collective agreement for the years 2021–2025 as a result of the sluggishness of both the SRC and the TSC.
