The Teachers Service Commission is now accusing Kenya National Union of Teachers Secretary General Wilson Sossion of misleading teachers and attempting to sabotage the implementation of Curriculum Program.
In statement to newsrooms the Commission denies it promised to promote 30,000 teachers as alleged by Sossion and warned teachers who defy orders that they will be disciplined.
Instead the commission accuses Sossion of misleading teachers on their contractual obligations.
A statement to newsrooms signed by TSC Head of Corporate Communications Kihumba Kamotho says there are no pending promotions. It further advises teachers to familiarize with the Career Progression Guidelines, plan their career advancement accordingly and to ignore union officials who are out to mislead them.
The statement further maintains that transfer of teachers is a key mandate provided under the constitution TSC clarified transfer appeals will be considered on Case-by-Case basis and only after the applicant has taken up the transfer.
At the same time school heads and teachers have been directed to undertake Performance Contracting for the Third term in line with the TSC Act, the Code of Regulations for Teachers and the 2017-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement.
TSC warns that action will be taken against teachers who defy orders.
This statement comes even as KNUT postponed their planned teachers strike to the 5th of September to pave way for consultations with TSC and other stakeholders.
