Teachers employed by the Teachers Service Commission in job group C4 have a reason to smile as they are set for a pay hike.
TSC Boss Dr. Nancy Macharia says that 30000 teachers in this job group will receive a salary increase at the end of February.
Macharia says that these teachers have been in trouble for a long time. The teachers in job group C4 are primarily primary school teachers who have worked for more than fifteen years.
Macharia recognizes the good work done by these teachers and hence says that they deserve a pay hike. Mr. Collins Oyuu and Akello Misori, secretary general of KNUT and KUPPET, aired the complaints of these teachers.
This forced the Teachers Service Commission to come to an agreement with these officers and hence the pay hike.
It is so disappointing that some teachers in this job group earn up to 27000 shillings per month.
This news will be celebrated by these teachers as they have been suffering for a long time.
