Teachers employed by the Teachers Service Commission who are in job group D2 have a reason to smile as they are set for a salary increment.
TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia says that 30,000 teachers in job group D2 will receive the salary increment at the end of February this year.
Macharia says that the commission has taken this move following series of cries from these teachers.These teachers channelled their grievances through their unions’ general secretaries Collins Oyuu and Akello Misori.
This compelled TSC to consider their cries hence the salary increment. D2 are mainly primary school teachers who have taught for over fifteen years. Macharia assures them of a salary increment and that they should not worry.
This news come at a time teachers are complaining about their salary increment. They fault TSC for not being real and always giving fake promises.
KNUT and KUPPET secretary generals however assure them that soon they will smile.
