It is reprieve for teachers as government decides to pay them their July salaries despite warning from Salaries and Remuneration Commission. Speaking after a follow-up meeting with officials of Kenya National Union of Teachers (TSC), Salaries Remuneration Commission and Teachers Serviceb Commission (TSC) at State House Nairobi, President Uhuru Kenyatta gave the assurance that teachers have agreed to teach during the second and third terms to bring schools up to speed with the time lost. Citing the relevant provisions of the law, President Kenyatta said the teachers’ strike became illegal and unprotected from the time KNUT failed to respect the Industrial Court order and call off the strike.
The President said KNUT agreed to work closely with the government to support the implementation of the laptop Project to ensure the integration of ICT into the education sector. President Kenyatta told trade unions to abide by the Collective Bargaining Agreements and to use the dispute resolution mechanisms before taking industrial action.
