Kenya Union of Post primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) general secretary Mr. Akelo Misori has accused the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) of waylaying the implementation of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) reached between the teachers and the government.
Misori who was speaking at Migori Teacher Training college where he attended the KUPPET Migori branch annual general meeting said the SRC is coming up with tough conditions which were not in the CBA previously.
He said they are still pursuing the matter with the government adding that they are going to resume their negotiations after the general election slated for next month. The KUPPET SG appealed to the teachers to remain patient saying their talks will not be in vain.
Meanwhile Mr. Misori wants the next parliament to consider gazetting hardship areas so that teachers working in those regions can benefit from the hardship allowance.
The teachers’ union official said the parliament must remove barriers which have delayed the maping and gazetement of such areas and proper remuneration of teachers attached to schools in those places
He said there are areas like Nyatike and Kuria East which are hardship areas but unfortunately the teachers working in the regions are not getting hardship allowance.
