Teachers employed by TSC are in loggerhead with their employer and teachers union leadership after receiving their latest payslip. The teachers employer together with the teachers’ unions had reached an agreement to promote teachers as well as effect salary increments for teachers who were in service as at July ,1st 2017. This has not been the case for many teachers in this month’s salary period.
The teachers employer has frozen the promotion of teachers from certain job groups, notably the C2 and B5 to succeeding carders. This has dealt a blow to a number of teachers in these job groups who are made to miss out on significant amounts of money that they ought to be receiving in this last part of the CBA implementation process.

Perhaps, the teachers employer might be receiving the massive complaints from the affected teachers and that’s why their pay might take longer than expected to get to their cash points.

With multiple complaints about the anomalies on the teachers payslips uploaded by their employer, some teachers have threatened to quit their unions should there be no explanation to what has informed failed promotion for lower job groups, especially, the C5 and B5.
Calls on the resignation of the knut secretary General Wilson sossion seem invetitable as some members of the union have accused him of failed representation on their behalf especially on promotion of given job groups and concequently their overall salary.
