The Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) on Tuesday struck a deal that will see the entry level into the teaching profession upgraded.

This will see more than 100,000 teachers promoted following the phasing out of the P1 entry grade in an agreement reached between the teachers’ employer and their union representatives.

At the end of two days of deliberations at a Naivasha hotel, the two parties emerged with a negotiated deal that also covers a salary increment for the teachers.

Teachers remain firm on salaries increment demands ahead of talks

Although teachers are today keeping their fingers crossed hoping for a deal that will give them a 300 per cent basic salary increase, the reality is that they are likely to be offered much lower than that when their union leaders meet TSC officials.

When the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) met Teachers Service Commission (TSC) officials two weeks ago, the employer asked them for more time to examine their demands for the next Collective Bargaining Agreement which will come into force next year.
