KNUT Pushes For Salary Increment, Promotions Ahead of Grade 7 Roll out in Primary Schools

Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) yesterday pressed for better pay for primary school headteachers owing to added responsibilities. Union secretary general Collins Oyuu  told headteachers yesterday the decision to domicile the Junior Secondary School learners in primary would result in a heavier workload for headteachers hence the need for improved terms of service.

“There is a clause in the previous CBA that is not addressed and therefore as a union, we shall be seeking a salary increment in line with terms and conditions of service,” said Oyuu. Oyuu who addressed the 18th (Kenya Primary Schools Heads Association (Kepsha) Annual Conference at the Sheikh Zayed Children Welfare Centre in Mombasa demanded the salary review for headteachers be implemented in January.

“Now that you have domiciled the junior secondary school in primary schools, we want to know what is the plight of teachers in terms of their welfare as they take up these responsibilities. Head-teachers are now going to be overburdened and this calls for a review of terms,” said Oyuu.
