Sossion also notes correspondences between Knut and the Salaries and Remuneration Commission, and tags in several government offices for action.

Sossion attached all copies of the correspondence which were sent to Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua, Cabinet Secretaries Fred Matiang’i (Interior), Ukur Yatani (National Treasury), Simon Chulugui (Labor), and George Magoha (Education).

After mentioning various points of disagreement with TSC, Sossion gives ultimatums for unspecified action.

“You have strictly three weeks to remedy all these, failure of which the union shall take stern action against you as provided in Article 41 of the constitution without any further referenced to you,” says Sossion.

“We have endured your overboard and illegal activities for far too long and not anymore.”

The core of th complaint is th implementation of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between the teacher’s employer and the union.

“We wish to state that you elected to mismanage the CBA that is currently under implementation and commenced the next CBA in an unprocedural manner,” Sossion said.

TCS has however dismissed the narrative saying, teachers, left Knut at their own will.

“There has been a narrative that TSC removed members from Knut to benefit a rival union and that is not true. If teachers left any union, they did so on their own based on a court ruling that worked against them,” said TSC Head of Corporate Affairs Beatrice Wababu.

Knut Secretary-General accuses TSC of disobeying a court order not to interfere with its membership.

Dr. Macharia however said TSC could not disobey the court.

According to Macharia when the CBA was signed, it brought in anew grading system – Career Progression Guidelines, which replaced the Scheme Service but Knut challenged its implementation in court.
