Tuesday’s comprehensive bargaining agreement signed between KNUT and teachers’ employer TSC in Naivasha accords them a chance for promotions.
Teachers are expected to be promoted before July 2017. The CBA further does away with the P1 grade entry level for teachers.
KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion said that the agreement would change the lives of teachers positively and also boost education standards in the country.
More than 106,000 teachers under the P1 grade are to be promoted under the new agreement effective July 1, 2017.
The promotions mean teachers will get a salary increment.
