Teachers’ Salary Increments

Teachers’ Salary Increments

Teacher Salary Increments at TSC. The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) has established a timeline for the announcement of the new teachers’ salary hike. This allays worries that teachers would miss out on raises because the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) for 2021–2025 hasn’t been approved yet.

 

 

 

The SRC’s chair is Lyn Mengich. She has already admitted that the commission is considering the Teachers Service Commission’s (TSC) proposed pay scales before coming up with its final recommendations.

TSC requests a basic salary increment of between 16 and 32 percent in the proposals, with classroom teachers receiving the larger benefits.

The 16 percent raise in base pay should be given to teachers in administrative grades (C4 to D5). This is because the 2016–2021 CBA was quite advantageous to them. Classroom instructors in the lowest grades (B5 to C3) will see a pay boost of 30% if the TSC recommendations are put into practice.

 

 

 

Mengich asserts that the SRC’s recommendations will be made public by June 20 of this year.

“Please be advised that the commission is reviewing the submission; the results will be shared. In the following two weeks, we will provide instructions, Mengich was cited in the media uttering such words.

 

 

 

The TSC will then determine the new teacher pay scales using the SRC advisory.

 

worries about KUPPET

The TSC’s slow progress in crafting the new CBA has already drawn the ire of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet).

 

 

 

I’m writing to express our concern over the Commission’s delay in concluding the new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) negotiations. Despite the upcoming expiration of the current CBA, the union has not yet received a counteroffer to our demand as per the established procedure. excerpts from a memo that Kuppet Secretary General Akello Misori delivered to TSC on May 19, 2021.
