The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has invited the Kenya National Union of Teachers, KNUT, officials to a consultative meeting on 19/10/2018. This meeting comes after the aborted Naivasha talks in which the two sides failed to reach an agreement on some contentious matters. “As you are aware, upon adjourned of the TSC/ KNUT retreat in Naivasha on 3/10/2018, parties agreed to meet later to deliberate on pending issues,” reads the communique from the TSC Chief executive, Dr. Nancy Njeri Macharia.
Among unresolved matters that KNUT wants the employer to address are: Stoppage of the delocalization exercise, stopping the TPAD evaluation and promoting teachers who have attained higher qualifications. This meeting comes after calls by various stake holders for the two sides to reach a truce on the contentious matters to allow the students sit their national examinations in a peaceful environment. During a television interview, today morning, the chair to the parliamentary committee on Education, Hon Julius Melly,exuded confidence that the two sides will reach an agreement as he had talked to the KNUT Secretary, Hon. Wilson Sossion.
“This is therefore to invite you to a meeting on 19/10/2018 at the Commission Chairperson’s Boardroom , 3rd floor, at 10.00 a.m to conclude on the same,” reads the letter sent by Dr. Macharia to the Secretary general KNUT,Hon. Wilson sossion.
This will be a big reprieve to learners who start writing their final exams in a fort night.
