TSC Invites KUPPET For CBA 2021-2025 Talks

The teachers service commission, TSC, has invited the Kenya national union of teachers (KUPPET) for talks concerning the 2021-2025 collective bargaining agreement (CBA).

The meeting will be held tomorrow, 29th June 2021 at safari park hotel.

“The commission has the pleasure to invite the Kenya national union of teachers (KUPPET) to a meeting to be held Tuesday 29th June 2021 at safari park hotel, Nairobi,” reads part of the letter signed by TSC CEO Nancy Macharia.

The agenda of the meeting, as indicated in the letter, include:

  1. Preliminaries
  2. Declaration of conflict of interest
  3. Tabling of the commissions counter offer
  4. Negotiating the 2021-2025 CBA

This new development comes amidst fears that CBA 2021-2025 will not be there after the salaries and remuneration commission, SRC, announcing its position concerning 2021-2025 collective bargaining agreement and salary reviews for the financial years 2021/2022 and 2022/2023.

The commission had maintained that there will be no salary increment up to 2024.This implied that for the next two financial years, teachers will have to forget about CBA and any salary review.

Currently, there exists a stalemate between the government and teachers over the 2021-2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

What raises questions is the fact that the budget for the next financial year has been read by  the Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani’s and the budget failed to factor in teachers’ salary increment.

With the current CBA expiring in two days, no cash has been allocated to finance the 2021-2025 CBA, despite the Ministry of Education being one of the biggest beneficiaries in the 2021/2022 financial year budget at over Sh588 billion allocation.
