Teachers to Receive Salary Increments, Payment of Arrears And Promotions From This Date
Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has paid the July salary and benefits for more than 315,000 teachers.
The Teachers’ salaries have already been deposited into their accounts by a few banks and saccos. Among them are Family Bank, National Bank, and KCB Bank.
Indeed there is proof that some teachers were paid for the month of July in arrears. TSC has also moved a few teachers from one job group to another.
As per to the Career Progression Guidelines, teachers who have spent three years in one job group have been moved to another.
This boost in this July has primarily benefited school administrators. Principals, headteachers, and senior teachers are some of these individuals.
The elongation wage scale points for grades C4, C5, D1, and D4 are points three through seven, as shown in the above table.
The extended wage scale points for grades D2 and D3 range from point two to point seven. The arrears will be paid this month.
According to TSC, teachers in grades B5, C1, C2, C3, and D5 are not eligible for pay increases under the terms of the CBA 2017–2021.
TSC argues that the teachers’ salaries cannot be enhanced because they have already reached their maximum compensation points.
“By the end of the cycle for CBA 2017 – 2021,” it was stated, “Grades B5, C1, C2, C3, and D5 have reached the maximum salary points permitted for in the banding.”
