Basic Salary & TSC Allowances for C3-T Scale 8 Senior Teachers, Lecturers, Secondary, Primary, SNE Teachers
The Teachers Service Commission has reached an agreement with the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET), the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), and the Kenya Union of Special Needs Education Teachers (KUSNET).
The group signed an addendum to the collective bargaining agreement for 2021–2025 with TSC to protect teachers from new statutory deductions and the rising cost of living.
The signature took place at the Kenya School of Government under the supervision of the union’s general secretary.
