Teachers threaten to exit Kuppet, Knut as they form a new union

A new union for all teachers has been formed. Forming of the new union would see a mass exodus of teachers from the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) and Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet).

The new teachers’ outfit, the National Education Union (Neu) will draw membership from all pre-primary, primary, secondary, post secondary and private learning institutions. This is the first union of a kind that will represent members across the board.

Kuppet represents members in Secondary and Post Secondary Institutions. On the other hand, Knut draws her membership from primary schools across the country. Other Unions include: the Kenya Union of Pre-primary Education Teachers (Kunoppet), which draws its membership from pre-primary teachers, and the Kenya Union of Technical and Vocational Education Trainers (Kutvet).

Neu has its operations and service delivery based on ‘service, justice and Unity.

Formation of the new union poses a major challenge to both Kuppet and Knut which teachers have castigated for signing an ’empty’ Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA); with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).

The two teachers’ unions are also riddled with acrimony more so at the National Offices. For instance, the current Kuppet National Offices renewed their term after changing the Constitution in favour.

The move to have all Kuppet members in its County Burial Benevolent Fund (BBF) has angered a section of members.

It remains to be seen if the TSC will open the union exit button on the the T-pay portal.
