Teachers’ Commuter allowance as per 2021-2024 TSC CBA Counter Proposal
The teachers’ service commission, TSC, has just concluded the implementation of the 2017-2020 collective bargaining agreement, CBA. Plans are underway to commence the four year phased implementation of a new CBA from July 2021.
The new CBA will favour classroom teachers when it comes to basic salaries, unlike the previous one, which favoured administrators.
TSC had earlier on presented a counter 2021-2024 CBA proposal to the Salaries And Remuneration Commission, SRC, for approval. This move by TSC came after a possible agreement with the unions, KNUT and KUPPET, was in vain.
KNUT proposed an increment of 50 % on the house allowance and a leave allowance equivalent to a month’s basic salary.
If SRC approves the 2021-2024 TSC counter proposal offer, then teachers will earn commuter allowances as per the table below, by the end of the CBA cycle in July 2024. The increment will commence in July 2021, with a phased amount of 5% on the current commuter allowance.
As per the proposed increments, teachers in job group D5, who are currently earning ksh. 16,000 will have the highest increment in their commuter allowance, amounting to ksh. 3,200.
