Though senior master IV is a promotional grade, the salaries were not captured appropriately in the just ended  2017–2021 CBA. 

The minimum and maximum salary ranges under the expired CBA was captured at Kshs. 627, 696–667,248 as per the Conversion Tables instead of Kshs. 667,248-784,000.

While addressing the matter via a letter sent to KUPPET Secretary General, Akelo Misori, TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia stated that during the preparation of the Conversion tables, the salary scales were structured in a manner that a teacher would attain the 4th Notch in the fourth (4) Year as per the CBA review cycle.

This was in anticipation that every Fourth year, the Commission would review the salary component of the CBA in each review cycle and teachers will convert to new salaries before attaining the 7th notch.

The commission has now noted that it will revise the promotional letters for senior Master to reflect the correct salary scale.

“In view of the new CBA, which has elongated the salary notches, the Commission will revise the Promotion Letters for the Senior Master IV teachers to reflect the correct salary scale at Kshs. 667,248–784,000, stated earlier.
