All JSS Teachers Assigned a Union by TSC
All JSS Teachers Assigned a Union by TSC. All Junior Secondary School (JSS) teachers must now be members of the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut), per a directive from the Teachers Service Commission.
Every teacher in the junior secondary sector will now be Knut members, according to the instructors Service Commission (TSC), which claims that the union difficulties for these teachers have been settled.
While Knut mostly represents teachers in primary schools, Kuppet is a union that represents educators in secondary schools and other settings.
Similar to their primary school counterparts, all junior secondary school teachers will contribute 2% of their base income and send in these dues each month to support the Knut union’s operations.
The majority of junior secondary teachers received their pay in the month of may.
However, only a small portion of the P1 instructors who were assigned to teach Grade 7 have received their salaries.
Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) and Knut are at odds over the membership of jss teachers.
These unions objected to junior secondary schools being housed in secondary schools because the Knut wanted to move junior secondary to primary schools.
Additionally, the education ministry ordered that JSS be housed in primary schools in accordance with the recommendations of the Presidential Working Party on Education Reform.
JSS programs are offered in elementary schools for a variety of reasons, including the age of the students, the accessibility of resources, and cultural considerations.
This month, Knut and Kuppet brought up the JSS argument once more and questioned what the difference was.
