TSC Latest News on Teachers Salary Increment 2023

TSC Latest News on Teachers Salary Increment 2023,

TSC’s pay will be increased in 2023. In July, raises will be given out to the nation’s educators. Because of a recent decision made by the High Court, teachers who are employed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will be eligible for an improved benefit beginning in the month of July.

In the month of July, the Philippine National Police (PNP) plans to give pay increases to more than 350,000 of its teachers and office staff. This is due to the fact that the TSC has already been given 9.1 billion shillings by the National Treasury.

The following is an analysis of the related salary increases for TSC teachers and government employees:

The TSC has revised the allowances for each job group in accordance with Circular 2023.

According to President William Ruto, the wage increase of 7–10% that is being given to teachers and government personnel is intended to shield public workers from the effects of the difficult economy.

 

“I am aware that the SRC has recommended increasing the compensation of a variety of different sorts of public employees, one of which is officials in government. As a result, Deputy President William Ruto announced today at the unveiling of the new e-citizen platform at the Kenyatta International Conference Center (KICC) that we have decided to increase the salaries of our teachers, police officers, military people, and government workers by between seven and ten percent beginning tomorrow.

The TSC will be increasing salaries in 2023.

However, the most recent judgement that the High Court has made regarding Finance Bill 2023 is what will make the salary hike that will take effect in July exciting for teachers.

The decisions that temporarily halted implementation of the Finance Act 2023 were not overturned by High Court Judge Mugure Thande on Wednesday.

 

The judge came to the conclusion that the petitioners (Busia senator Okiya Omtatah and others) had proven that they have a case. The judge also stated that the public would suffer if the orders were lifted, thus he found in favor of the petitioners.

In addition, the judge ordered that the file be delivered to Chief Justice Martha Koome, who will select a panel of three judges to hear the matter and make a decision after deliberating on it.

The Most Important Aspects Regarding the July Pay Raise for Teachers
This means that teachers will receive their pay for the month of July with a 7% salary rise and without the 1.5% housing fund reduction that was put into the Finance Act 2023 and was expected to commence on July 1, 2023. This was due to the fact that the increase in the housing fund was scheduled to begin on July 1, 2023.

According to the most recent order issued by the Court, TSC is not permitted to deduct 1.5% of teachers’ wages in order to contribute to the Housing Fund.

 

Teachers will not only see an increase in their take-home income, but they will also have the opportunity to borrow a larger sum of money through check-off loans.

 

Since the pay raise was ordered to take effect on July 1 in accordance with the president’s directive, it will be reflected on pay stubs for the month of July.

The TSC will be increasing salaries in 2023.

The pay of educators is scheduled to increase by seven percent in the first fiscal year, 2023-2024. Their salaries are scheduled to increase by 8% in the second year, which is 2024-2025; by 9% in the third year, which is 2025-2026; and by 10% in the final year, which is 2026-2027.

Position of the Teachers Union (KNUT) Regarding the Pay Raise for Teachers
The Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut), on the other hand, has complained and issued TSC with an ultimatum to call a meeting to review the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) that was signed in 2021. The deadline for the meeting is in 14 days.

Earlier, the Teacher Service Commission (TSC) proposed awarding teachers wages of Sh2 billion, which is fantastic, but the National Treasury slashed it to Sh1 billion. Collins Oyuu, the Knut SG, stated that “we still want our TSC to sit down with us and reopen the way for negotiations.”

 

But since that the precondition for discussions has been eliminated, there is little point in continuing. We sent a letter to the TSC, and I gave them 14 days to bring us to the table so that we can begin examining the CBA that we signed in 2021 that has nothing to do with money. In the letter, we stated that we would begin this review as soon as they responded. “We can’t forget that the economy in this country is so bad that we have to get together once more to make sure the instructors have something to eat,” he said. “We can’t forget that.”
