Teachers demand for pay Increase.Following an unjust distribution, the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education (KUPPET) called for an increase in the teachers’ housing allowance.
In a statement to the media on January 25, KUPPET Secretary-General (SG) Akelo Misori urged the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) to equalise the allowances.

He stated that no matter the locale, the amount typically given to teachers across the nation should be identical.
“These allowances have existed since 2012, and the amounts are not even reasonable.” Why are you pushing the union and the employer of teachers to have this conversation quickly? Misori questioned.

All public officers were to be eligible for the allowances, according to an SRC circular.
From the projected implementation date forward, “the new rates for the housing allowances shall apply to all public officers, other than state officers, at the national and county governments, including state businesses.”
In order to implement the policies reviewed here, respective civil service employers should begin collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) with the pertinent trade unions, according to a portion of the circular.
According to SRC, public employees who reside in any of the former big municipalities will receive the same housing stipend.
This comes after KUPPET requested a review of the rules governing national tests and the marking procedure in light of pressing concerns.
Additionally, they requested from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) specific information on the number of educators who had remained in the same occupational categories for many years.
The SRC has been under fire for its decision to eliminate doctors’ contractual wages and salaries, according to the Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU).
