As the implementation of kuppet’s 2017-2021 CBA draws towards the end, with TSC having implemented the 3rd face in July and the final face expected in July next year, it has been confirmed that the negotiations for new dispensation CBA 2021-2025 will begin on 22nd August 2019 . TSC, in response to Kuppet demands, has invited kuppet leadership for a meeting in Nairobi to kick start the process.
According Secretary General Akelo Misori, the union has already set in motion new areas for engagement post 2021, among the areas targeted in kuppet proposal submitted to TSC early this year includes
✓ Immediate Enhancement of teachers Medical cover following kuppet leadership in parliment having successfully petitioned the August house to add an additional Ksh.2B to the current 5.9B
✓ Harmonization of house allowances based on job group as opposed to region
✓ Review of the basic salary for low cadre (classroom teacher) personnel who missed out in the current CBA
✓ Clear promotion procedures for diploma, graduate and post graduate tutors amongst others
National vice chairman Julius Korir while addressing a press conference this afternoon at kuppet headquarters assured teachers that the union will engage the employer tactfully but with utmost good faith to ensure that the all issues raised by secondary school teachers are addressed fully in the next CBA.
