 TSC New Lists More Than 186,000 Teachers Set To Receive Higher Salary

The teachers’ employer (TSC) has released a list of 186,744 teachers who are set to receive higher salaries from July this year as part of the implementation of the Second Phase of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) signed between their unions and TSC.

According to TSC, the Top beneficiaries in this program are mostly teachers serving at primary schools, who are keeping their fingers crossed awaiting the approval of the 18 billion shillings Budget presented by their employer before Parliament that will pave way for the access to the enhanced pay

Among the reapers are those in the lowest grades of the teaching service at Job Groups H (128,047 teachers), J (15,140 teachers), and K (43,557 teachers), whose pay package was spread over two years under the negotiated salaries while those in higher Job Groups will have their salaries cleared in a four-year cycle.

A detailed budget proposal of 18 billion shillings tabled before the National Assembly Education Committee and seen by Education News indicates that part of these monies will be utilized in the implementation of the Shs54 billion CBA that will run for a period of four years (2022 -2025).

In addition, those teachers at Grade C1 (formerly Job Group ‘J’) who take home Shs25,929 currently will be happy to receive Shs27,195 in basic salaries in July this year.

While she was speaking before the Committee, the TSC Chief Executive Officer, Nancy Macharia reiterated that the implementation of the CBA that would benefit all the 312,060 teachers under its employment was a priority and asked the legislators to push for the approval of the funds as this would assure industrial peace within the teaching service

In the Estimates presented before the Committee Chairman, Julius Melly, TSC is requesting Shs16 billion to cater for the recruitment of 68,000 intern teachers as a stop-gap measure in plugging the rising shortfall of tutors in public institutions.

The TSC also sought Shs5 billion to recruit 12,000 teachers to address the present shortage and another Shs3.6 billion to hire another 5,476 to take care of additional learners arising from the 100% pupil transition to secondary school.
