kenya: A big win for Teachers: Supreme Court orders TSC to effect teachers’ pay rise
The Supreme Court has dismissed an application by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) seeking to bar the awarding of 50-60 percent
It was a big win for teachers, when the Supreme Court judges on Monday upheld the ruling by the Employment and Labor Relations Court in July, ordering the government to give teachers a basic salary increment of 50 – 60%.
Speaking outside the Supreme Court, Knut Secretary General Wilson Sossion welcomed the ruling and urged teachers to remain united as they press in for what is rightfully theirs.
He hit out at TSC for paying salaries early, to evade the directive.
TSC moved to the highest court after the Court of Appeal on July 23 ordered the commission to pay the increment to the 288,000 teachers
