The collective agreement refers to a written or written agreement between an employer and a union that sets out the terms of employment or provisions relating to the rates of pay, working time or other working conditions of the workers. For more information, see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collective_agreement. According to Commission Director General Nancy Macharia, the 2013-2017 agreement aims to take into account teachers` salaries and allowances and to restore discipline in the education sector. If you are one of those who do not have a clear idea of the issue of CBA, here is a simple definition: the signing of this agreement was sealed today at the annual conference of high school principals in Mombasa and was attested by national president Knut Mudzo Nzili, Secretary General Wilson Sossion and TSC President Lydia Nzomo. This note is composed of Senior Master IV, Senior Lecturer IV and Deputy Head Teacher II (T-Scale 9 – Job Group `G`, `H`, `J`, `K` and `L`), which will be dated from 1 July 2017, shs26.610 and will increase to a maximum of Shs46.912, representing a new scale. Previously, its highest point was Shs47, 896. The current collective agreement (CBA) between the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) expires on 30 June 2021. In this context, KNUT submitted to TSC, on 29 October 2019, full proposals from CBA, also with a request for a meeting. ix) More importantly, the Commission should strive at all times to resolve all teachers` complaints by mutual agreement in order to achieve a lasting peace in the field of public education.
x) a full assessment of the classroom teachers` workstations should be carried out appropriately to ensure adequate remuneration for this manager in the next KBA. She pointed out that an improved alternative dispute resolution mechanism for the handling of complaints had been put in place within the KBA to ensure the stability of the teaching service. Assistant Directors III and I, who are in D2 class (T-Scale 12 – Job Group `N`) from July 1, 2017, will receive Shs59, 286 for a minimum shot at a maximum of Shs80, 242, which is a new scale. Therefore, the TSC`s sudden action is to circumvent the proper process of negotiating and developing a new CBA by dragging proposals to SRC, ultra vires and a deliberate attempt by the Commission to provoke teachers. The teachers` commission`s salary schedules follow the occupational categories “H,” “J,” “K,” “L,” “M” and “N.” The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) did extend the T 13 scale to grade D3; T-Scale 12 in grade D2 and T-Scale 9 in C4 degrees are dated from July 1, 2017. The long ladders are covered by the employment groups “H” to `N`. By established standards… standards applied in the negotiation and processing of the current CBA (2017/2021); The first meeting of the Committee is to define rules of engagement that comply with the laws of the country and the ILO statutes; followed by the presentation of proposals by trade unions, followed by analysis and justifications. In addition, visually impaired teachers and wheelchair users will continue to use emission methods tailored to people with disabilities. Knut reacted angrily to the Commission`s action and wants appropriate proceedings to be initiated in the development of the new CBA for teachers. “It has consolidated the progress made over the years in the teaching department, particularly from 2013 to the present.
It has created a basis for future CBA negotiations between the parties,” she outlined. Sossion expressed satisfaction with the new CBA and assured teachers that it would address their concerns and would end strikes to allow teachers to receive quality training.
