KUPPET Questions Teachers’ Salary Delay in JSS
KUPPET Questions Teachers’ Salary Delay in JSS. The board in charge of hiring school teachers and tutors is called the Teacher Service Commission (TSC). The commission’s main responsibility is to oversee teachers’ pay and benefits and to facilitate their wellbeing.
JSS Teachers’ Salary Delay
It is sad that, despite TSC’s assurances that everything was being done to ensure payment would be made in March, our JSS colleagues have once again failed to receive their salary.
This message is intended to let our JSS members know that the Kuppet Migori branch, working with the National Executive Board and its Secretary General, has contacted the Teachers Service Commission about this issue.
The majority of teachers, however, have once again been left out. The union now vehemently demands that the commission speed up salary payments in order to allow teachers to settle in at their place of employment.
Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has already confirmed payment to a small group of tutors this month. It must be emphasized that since their deployment to various stations in January 2023, the aforementioned group of tutors has endured unspeakable suffering.
Majority primary schools, where JSS’s are housed, are unable to offer soft loans or vouchers to our members to assist them in meeting even the most basic needs.
If TSC doesn’t agree to pay the remaining group by April 2023, the union will be forced to issue general instructions.
