Through its social media handles TSC through its Head of Corporate Affairs Beatrice Wababu has reassured teachers that the CBA 2017 to 2021 is intact and there is no cause for alarm since it will be paid by the end of July. The CBA which mostly favours school administrators is expected to come to an end by July this year which is also the fourth phase. TSC also highlighted some of its achievements for the past five years.
“As we await government directives on re-opening of schools, the Commission wishes to thank all teachers for the support that they have been according us. We value this partnership which has enabled us to continue serving you even under the current circumstances. Further, we value your efforts in engaging your learners with online lessons and words of encouragement. Thank you and please continue reaching out.
Due to the unique nature of the teaching profession, our relationship with teachers goes a step further beyond the labour law. It is one of mutual understanding, relying on constant feedback both ways. We rely on you to perform our job better and in turn you rely on us to provide quality education to the Kenyan child. This goodwill has enabled the Commission to achieve a lot in the last five years. Key among our achievements is the signing of the 2017-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement with teachers’ unions.
The fourth phase of CBA implementation comes at the end of this month. Another crucial achievement is the automation of TSC services and especially the T-Pay system through which you approve and monitor your third party financial transactions.As the Covid 19 situation keeps on evolving, we encourage you to continue staying safe. Together we shall conquer the challenges of the “new normal” of living with the virus and continue serving our great nation.” said the head of TSC communications through TSC Kenya facebook handle.
