Salary and Benefits Review by TSC
Salary and Benefits Review by TSC.If TSC request is approved, primary and secondary school teachers will soon have their salary increased and their benefits. This comes after teacher’s outcry for pay rise been hitting deaf ears for many years. Hence they are hopeful that the TSC request will be successful.
Nancy Macharia, CEO of TSC, stated that the economy had improved and called for higher compensation.
In order to encourage teachers, the commission would like to reconsider the 2021–2025 CBA’s compensation component, according to Macharia.
When TSC went before the National Assembly Education Committee on Tuesday, the CEO made a statement requesting that teacher’s salary and benefits should be reviewed.
Macharia asked that TSC receive assistance from the Julius Melly-led committee during the evaluation process.
The CBA would be revised halfway through in light of the nation’s improved economic situation, she said.
Due to the consequences of Covid-19 on the nation’s economy, the unions in the public sector decided to sign a cashless CBA in July 2021 against the SRC’s recommendation for non-monetary CBAs.
Knut claims that the most recent pay raise for teachers was distributed in two stages, from 2016–2017 to 2017–2018.
The benefits of increased maternity and paternity leave days were included in the 2021–2025 CBA.
Collins Oyuu, the secretary general of Knut, had previously claimed that a CBA revision agreement had been signed after a year.
As things are, the recovery from Covid 19 has already been accomplished, thus we seek a 60% increase, he stated.
A grade D5 teacher who currently earns Sh157, 656 will receive Sh252, 249 after a 60% pay increase under the demand for a salary increase of 60%.
Teachers in grades D3 and D2 who make Sh104,644 and Sh91,0401 will receive Sh167, 430 and Sh145, 665 correspondingly, while the grade D4 teacher who earns Sh121, 890 will take home Sh195, 024.
Teachers in grades D1 and C5, who make Sh85,269 and Sh64,631, respectively, will receive Sh136,430 and Sh103,409. Grade C4 would receive Sh83 692 for earning Sh52 308, while Grade C3 will receive Sh86 308 for earning Sh53 943.
Teachers in grades C2 and C1, who currently earn Sh43, 694 and Sh33, 694, respectively, are expected to receive Sh69, 910 and Sh53, 910 while teachers in B5, who currently make Sh27, 195, would receive Sh43, 512.
Teachers are optimistic that the request posted by TSC to Education Committee goes through due to hiked life expenditures.
