The Teachers Service Commission, the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) and the Kenya Union of Post Primary School Teachers (KUPPET) have signed an unprecedented second Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), ending decades of industrial strife.

The four-year CBA sets out the terms and conditions of employment for all teachers in public schools in Kenya. The deal was reached through the guidance and technical support from FKE’s Industrial Relations Department who have spent time with TSC since the beginning of 2017.

FKE has provided guidance, training and advice to TSC and the Unions on Negotiation, Counterproposal, Mandate and techniques of reaching an agreement. FKE had further guided the parties in developing the first CBA that was signed in June 2016 and formed the basis for the second CBA.

The deal will see the entry level into the teaching profession upgraded and alsoexpands the grading structure of the top cadre of teachers.It has also created distinct career paths for all teachers and will last from 2017 to 2021.

The Teachers Service Commission is one of the largest members of FKE.
