TSC ordered to return 130,000 union members
Aug. 11, 2020
Parliament yesterday directed the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to reinstate 130,000 teachers removed from the teachers’ union register by end of this month. Appearing before Parliament’s Education Committee yesterday, the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) told MPs how the teachers’ employer hatched an elaborate plot to strip it of its members, crippling its operations and putting the union on its death bed. The union’s deputy secretary general Hesbon Otieno told MPs that with more than 700 staff across 110 branches, the diminished numbers had made it difficult to sustain its operations.
The order by MPs is seen as a major boost to Knut’s bargaining power that had dwindled in the recent past. Focus now shifts to the new CBA negotiations as the present one expires at the end of this Financial Year. At the meeting, MPs also instructed Knut and TSC to meet and iron out issues that have poisoned industrial relations between the teachers and their employer, among them, claims of parallel payrolls.
