The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) secretary general Wilson Sossion has asked the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to stop the implementation of policies which he termed as punitive.
Addressing teachers at Chebisaas Girls Secondary School in Aldai, Nandi County during the KNUT annual general meeting for the Nandi South Branch, Sossion said that teachers won’t accept the unilateral and punitive policy decision making by TSC, insisting that teachers will go on strike in September if the issue of teachers’ delocalization and performance contract appraisals won’t be abolished.
He revealed that delocalization is inconsiderate and demoralizes teachers. “International labour laws allow teachers to teach within their localities using their language, which is clearly understood by students and parents. Due to that, transferred teachers should be taken back to their former schools,” he said.
