Through this committee, the trade unions present their proposals for discussion, according to which the Commission makes a counter-offer. The details of the interviews and the counter-offer will then be forwarded to the Wages and Compensation Commission (RCS) for consultation before Knut and TSC sign the agreement. In light of the collective bargaining concluded by the ILO/Unesco, the result of which is a collective agreement, the deadlines for negotiating and concluding the 2021/2023 collective agreement for public service teachers are quickly expiring, as the financial component must be included in the government`s 2021/2022 budget estimates. Teachers in classes C4 to D5 benefit from a 16% increase in their basic salaries in the new collective agreement proposed by their employer. The biggest fear for teachers is Section 3.3 of the current CBA (2017/2021), which says in part: “This agreement remains in force and binds all parties until a new CBA is negotiated.” There will be a counter-proposal from the employer before the Src Board is sought to pave the way for the signing of the agreement. The primary objective of these negotiations is to reach a collective agreement governing the terms of employment. Collective agreements may also address the rights and obligations of the parties, thereby ensuring harmonious and productive employment. Improving the integration of collective bargaining and collective agreements is a good way to reduce inequality and increase labour protection. However, this process must be conducted strictly according to rules and rules and a specific timetable in order to facilitate and implement the collective agreement. This means that if TSC cannot stimulate negotiations with teachers on a new KBA, the parties will continue to use the old agreement, which is already in serious dispute after the Commission has stated that it will use two parallel pay slips in the field of public education. The Kenya National Union Of Teachers has already challenged the Commission`s decision. This essentially implies that the senior and the main leader must earn at least Ksh.131, 380 and a maximum of Ksh.157, 656. The deputy directors of group D1 to D3 earn between 77,840 and Ksh.125, 573.
For unexplained reasons, TSC Knut ignored knut during the development of CBA 2021/2023, in total violation of Article 41, paragraph 5, the Constitution and Section 13.5 of the TSC Act. (vii) Trade union officials should be given effective protection against any act submitted to them, including dismissal or the register of teachers because of their status or their function as representatives of workers. (ILO Convention – Article 143). . What about the teachers who missed the CBA that just ended? Some of us stagnate too long in a classroom. Let tsc carefully examine our personal files. However, lower-class teachers are the most privileged in the proposed new package. The Central Bank of Kenya assured in March that the Covid 19 pandemic would probably not affect the country`s inflation, but with the appearance of things, the scourge is already hurting the pockets of low-income people, including civil service teachers. Kenya`s annual inflation rate fell to 4.2% in June from 4.3% the previous month.
