TSC July salary increment. Teachers employed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and other public servants will receive a salary increase in July.
Beginning tomorrow, July 1, the government has approved a wage increase of 7 to 10% for teachers and civil officials.
This follows President William Ruto’s remarks on Friday, June 30 at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) that there is a need to cushion public servants from the tough economic times.
TSC July salary increment
“I know there is a proposal by SRC for the increase of salaries of different cadres of both civil servants and other public servants. So our teachers, policemen, military space, and those working in government, we have agreed that from tomorrow your salaries will be adjusted between 7 and 10 percent,” Ruto said during the launch of the new e-citizen platform.
The president has also requested that the SRC postpone modifying the wages of State authorities such as
- His deputy Rigathi Gachagua,
- Cabinet, and
- Principal Secretaries, stating that those may wait.
The SRC proposed;
- Raising Ruto’s salary from Sh1,443,750 to Sh1,546,875 and
- His deputy’s salary from Sh1,227,188 to Sh1,367,438 beginning July 1.
The Head of State, however, rejected the plan, arguing that it was necessary to achieve pay parity before imposing the rise.
The wage increase will have to wait, according to the president, until the remuneration committee confirms that the nation has reached the compression formula barrier.
Civil officials who had endured salary delays earlier this year can finally breathe a sigh of relief, as the government claimed that it was in a financial bind and had nowhere to turn for money.
However, on their July payslips, teachers and other public employees will see a 1.5% cut from their gross income directed to housing projects.
