TSC payboom for teachers. A major pay raise for teachers of up to 50% has been widely supported by the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET).
Akelo Misori, the secretary general of KUPPET, has stressed the necessity of addressing the issue of teachers’ pay in order to lessen the financial difficulties they experience.
Misori discovered that despite recent compensation increases ranging from 7 to 9.5 percent, they were insufficient to meet instructors’ expectations.
He highlighted that talks about a potential pay raise are still in progress.

According to Akelo Misori, they are requesting a salary raise for teachers of up to 50%.
In addition, according to KUPPET, teachers who get a master’s or doctoral degree while working for a school must also receive fair pay.
We insist on a wage increase of up to 50% as well as teacher promotions that correspond to this increase.
“Compensation should be expanded to teachers who have earned master’s and doctorate degrees during their employment,” Misori said.
KNUT Deputy General Secretary Hesborn Otieno said the union would continue to push for pay hikes.
This is to shield teachers from the present economic difficulties.
These was in his remarks at the KNUT branch’s annual general meeting on Saturday.
