KNUT has demanded that the Teachers Service Commission revokes show cause letters issued to teachers in various branches for defying the directive on delocalisation. Chairman Wycliffe Omuchei said in a press conference on Thursday that TSC should stop the delocalisation or “else the union will take unspecified action.” “Withdraw all the show case letters that you have written to our members with immediate effect. This affects all teachers,” he said.
“They should listen to us so that we listen to them. If they don’t, then God knows what we will do.”
Omuchei said teachers were not happy about the policies further lamenting that the Knut was not involved in the decision. “We are asking TSC to stick to what we agreed on in the meeting. Reverse the transfers of teachers as our members have a right to participate in the activities of the union,” he said.
Secretary general Wilson Sossion said it was ‘regrettable and unfortunate’ that the TSC is attempting to engage in savage attacks of the union leadership and members. The teachers employer had accused Sossion of being dishonest about the ongoing negotiations between the union and the commission.
