KNUT threatens to issue fresh strike notice

The Kenya National Union of Teachers is threatening to issue a fresh strike notice accusing the Teachers Service Commission of backtracking on some of the agreements that led to the shelving of the planned industrial action.

KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion says even after TSC agreed to halt teachers transfer and appraisal policies among other issues, the commission has gone ahead to reprimand  teachers who allegedly defied the directive.

The war of words between Teachers Service Commission and Kenya National Union of Teachers is likely to jeopardize a peace deal between the two institutions that led to the suspension of the planned September 1st strike by teachers.

KNUT is now accusing TSC of reneging on the August 23 consultative meeting resolutions that agreed to stop teacher transfers and appraisal exercise.

During the consultative meeting, TSC and KNUT agreed to hold  a 5 day retreat from 30 September, a meeting that the union officials says will determine the way forward.

KNUT has also demanded the withdrawal of the show cause letters issued by TSC to teachers in Masaba, Nyamira County for burning appraisal forms.

Over the weekend TSC released a statement in which it accused KNUT of misleading teachers and warned those found flouting orders will be disciplined.
