Teachers’ Leave 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.
In the TSC 2021-2024 CBA counter proposal offer, the basic salaries will be increased by between 16 % and 32 %. TSC earlier proposed an increment of 10 % on the house allowance but changed it to 20% in the counter proposal offer presented to SRC so that it matches leave and commuter allowances.
According to the TSC counter proposal, leave allowance should be increased by 20%. If SRC approves the counter proposal, then 20 % leave allowance increment will be disbursed in four phases, beginning January 2022. Leave allowance is only paid once a year, mostly in the month of January. The increment in each phase will be 5%.
TSC counter proposal offer, then teachers will earn leave allowances as per table below.
