However, Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) teachers will miss out on promotions as the union has rejected the Career Development Guidelines (CPG) that will be used to transfer teachers.

However, Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) teachers will miss out on promotions as the union has rejected the Career Development Guidelines (CPG) that will be used to transfer teachers.

The TSC implemented career guidelines that served as the basis for upward action against Knuth’s automatic promotion in the old order.

Justice Byrum Ongaya last month struck down the new career development rules for the promotion of teachers, which Knuth strongly opposed.

This means that all Knut Certified members will not benefit from the promotion.



Nancy Macharia, chief executive of TSC, said she created the CPG after realizing that the Service Scheme was a poor tool in this area.

“The court’s ruling on teachers’ promotion means that some of the promotional benefits that CPG received are lost,” said Macharia.

He said that the promotion of teachers who are members of Knut must be in accordance with the rules of the Service Scheme.

Macharia said that in CPG, he has implemented Phase I and Phase II of CBA for all teachers regardless of the union.



“The CBAs have introduced a paradigm shift in teachers’ salaries which until now were not based on job value, but on teachers’ job groups,” Macharia said in an earlier statement.

Kuppet has started negotiations for the 2021-2015 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) regarding the proposal to raise wages.



Kuppet proposed to increase the basic salary by 30 per cent to 70 per cent from the current minimum wage of Sh21,756 to Sh36,985,” said Kuppet.
