“ We’ve started the process with the gregarious government and we shall have it finalised by the new government after the August pates, ” said Oyuu
He said the meeting in Naivasha with TSC pushed for preceptors ’ financial gain which was agreed through structured addresses.
TSC was in a series of meetings with Knut from Tuesday 5th to Friday 8th July 2022 to strike a deal on payment proliferation for preceptors among other issues.
Numerous preceptors were still staying for Oyuu to address them on the CBA offer tabled by TSC during the Naivasha addresses.

Last week Hesbon Otieno, who’s also the Knut Deputy clerk general, kept preceptors hopeful when he said the addresses on payment proliferation as well as other issues affecting preceptors were bandied and concluded.
“ I can gasp then that we had a cordial discussion that ended on Friday and that we’ve successfully concluded our meeting with TSC, ” said Otieno amid applause by preceptors.
He said the addresses on CBA agreement with TSC will be revealed to the public led by their clerk general Collins Oyuu.
“ We’ll reveal information at the right time and the clerk general himself will speak and the total of the democracy will know the discussion we’re having with the preceptors Service Commission, ” said Otieno.
Still Oyuu now says the addresses have just started and preceptors should be patient as the deal can only be reached after pates.
Knut is demanding for 60 percent payment rise which they submitted as a offer to the Commission for review during the addresses.
Mr Oyuu said TSC should present the schoolteacher’s payment offer to the hires and Remuneration Commission( SRC) to insure that preceptors admit payment proliferation soonest.
“ We both agreed to have a structured discussion and we agreed to have a structured payment proliferation, ” he said.
Oyuu said that last time they inked the 2021 – 2025non-monetary CBA after assuming office but with the high cost of living, the CBA must be reviewed to insure the preceptors get a payment proliferation.
“ The affectation rate at the moment does n’t allow that we hold several boardroom meetings with the employer, government agencies and indeed musketeers without mentioning the aspect of a financial gain. preceptors want plutocrat and not stories, ” said Oyuu.
“ President Uhuru Kenyatta awarded all informal workers a 12 per cent payment proliferation on Labour Day, this shows the frugality has bettered. We’re publicizing that we’ve started a structured concession with TSC to see that a 60 per cent payment rise is awarded. ”
Knut was also in discussion with TSC on the Administrative recommendations which ordered creation of preceptors who upgraded their instruments.
Parliament recommended that the TSC should continue feting and admitting advanced qualifications acquired by preceptors while in service.
“ Our position as Knut was and continues to be that creation policy be reviewed to accommodate, motivate and encourage preceptors with advanced academic qualifications so that their trouble does n’t go to waste, ” said Collins Oyuu, Knut clerk general.
On schoolteacher Professional Development( TPD), Knut has agreed with TSC to launch a sensitization programme for preceptors to embrace the training programme.
The preceptors ’ union which now boasts of over,000 members further says that the schoolteacher Professional Development( TPD) that was rolled out in 2013, was a good action but TSC didn’t invest in the sensitization of preceptors on its need, utility and its benefits.
Oyuu said that Knut and TSC agreed that the commission organises sensitisation shops for all preceptors so as to make them understand TPD and its perpetration.
In refresher training courses, Oyuu said that the resistance that was witnessed after the TPD programme was rolled out was occasioned by the fact that proper sensitization wasn’t done.
