TSC Updated Salary Structure After 7–10% Increase

TSC Updated Salary Structure After 7–10% Increase

Teachers began to express their worries about the difference between the highest and lowest grade increases a few days after the government employees’ salary was examined.

It is anticipated that the lowest grade, B5, also referred to as P1 instructors, will earn a larger boost than the highest grade.Collins Oyuu, the secretary general of the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut), expressed his displeasure with the raise in pay and stated that the union was reviewing the revised package before considering the next line of action.

Oyuu’s response to a question was, “Our stand still remains that the lowest paid should be the greatest beneficiary.”

Akello Misori of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Teachers (Kuppet), like other leaders, simply stated that a comprehensive statement would be made later.

The lowest paid teacher in B5 will see an increase from their current income of Sh21,756 to a minimum of Sh23,279 and from their present compensation of Sh27,195 to a maximum of Sh29,915, if the Government’s proposal is implemented.

For a 7% rise, this amounts to a minimum increase of about Sh1,523 and a 10% increase to Sh2,720.

On the other hand, the best grade of D5 may bring in at least Sh173,422.

According to the proposal, teachers in the D5 grade, who presently make a base wage of Sh131,380, will get at least a 7 percent pay increase to Sh140,577.

A teacher currently making Sh157,657 base pay will receive no more than Sh174,422 after a 10% raise.

This translates to an increase of roughly Sh9,197 for a new basic pay scale with a minimum of 7% and up to Sh15,766 for a new basic pay scale with a maximum of 10%.

“Under the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) scheme, the highest-paid teacher received the most benefits, but what we wanted was for the lowest-paid teachers to receive the most,” a teacher’s union official who wished to remain unnamed stated.

While C1 instructors are primarily diploma teachers who are immediately promoted to the following grade after three years, B5 teachers are primarily P1 teachers and earn the least money.

Graduating students from entry-level programs are among those in grade C2, and after three years of employment in this occupational group, they are promoted to grade C3.

C3 instructors must interview in order to move on to the following grade.

D1 contains secondary assistant principals and recently appointed principals, whereas C4 includes senior teachers and primary assistant principals.

Also read: This month, teachers and government employees will lose 3% of their gross salaries.

Equity and justice

Principals and assistant principals are considered teachers in D2 and D3 schools, whereas principals and chief principals are considered teachers in D4 and D5 schools.

Teachers in Grades D1 through D5 also serve in an administrative capacity. While D3 and D4 instructors can direct County and extra-county schools, D2 teachers can direct Sub-County schools.

Pay Review implementation

According to Lyn Mengich, the head of the SRC, who made this statement on Wednesday, the evaluation is meant to promote equity and justice in compensation and benefits within the public service while adhering to the principles of affordability and fiscal sustainability.

SRC inquired about funding from the National Treasury in accordance with the constitutional values of fiscal responsibility and accessibility. The National Treasury gave the SRC the go-ahead to assess the pay structure while maintaining the Sh27.7 billion budgetary allotment for the fiscal years 2023–2024.

According to the proposed budget, the teaching service will receive 44.2%, or Sh9.5 billion, of the total budget of Sh21.7 billion.

The teachers’ union agreed to a non-financial Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) for the years 2021–2025, but it also made a commitment to its members that a review of basic pay would be conducted once TSC got approval from SRC. As a result, tutors are given relief.

However, in light of recent inflation rates, the unions have asked that TSC reevaluate their salary.

The current base wage of Sh118,242 for D4 will increase by 7% and 10%, respectively, to a minimum of Sh126,519 and a maximum of Sh156,080.

The grade D3 wage would rise by 10% from Sh104,644 to a minimum of Sh111,969 and from Sh125,573 to a maximum of Sh138,130.

10% more money will be provided to grade D2 teachers, who now make Sh91,041, bringing their salary up to a minimum of Sh97,414 and a maximum of Sh120,174.

D1 salaries were projected to increase from Sh77,840 to Sh83,289 (a 7% increase) and from Sh93,408 to Sh102,749 (a 10% increase), whereas C5 salaries were projected to increase from Sh62,272 to a minimum of Sh66,631 and from the current basic compensation of Sh77,840 to a maximum of Sh86,625 (a 10% increase).

Similar pay increases were expected for C4 teachers, whose starting salaries would climb from Sh52,308 to a maximum of Sh55,970, and for C3 teachers, whose starting salaries would decrease from Sh43,154 to a minimum of Sh46,175 and increase by 10% from Sh53,943 to Sh59,337.

While C2 instructors with a base pay of Sh34,955 would earn a minimum of Sh37,402 and from Sh43,694 to Sh48,064, C1 teachers’ salaries would climb from Sh27,195 to a minimum of Sh29,099 with a 7% increase and from Sh33,994 to a maximum of Sh37,393 with a 10% increase.

The government has been encouraged by teachers’ unions to take into account the condition of workers, avoid disruptive policies, and hold thorough consultations before enacting any policy that would affect workers’ wages during the current period of extreme economic hardship.

For instance, Kuppet asserted last month that widespread service stagnation was to blame for the situation’s deterioration, citing over 62,000 instructors who had remained in their job groups for more than five years and some for ten.

Kuppet added that President William Ruto met with the union’s National Governing Council (NGC) in May at State House. During their meeting, Ruto assured the union that the government would guarantee teachers a minimum 10% pay increase following the passage of the Finance Bill.
