Attention Junior Secondary School Teachers: Welcome to the Knut Union!

Hey, JSS teachers, we’ve got some news for you! The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has issued a new directive that requires all teachers working in the junior secondary school sector to become proud members of the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut). Yes, that’s right, it’s time to join the union party!

Now, you might be wondering, why the sudden change? Well, the TSC believes that this move will bring about better coordination and representation for teachers in the JSS sector. It’s all about fostering unity and ensuring that your voices are heard loud and clear.

But wait, let’s clear up any confusion here. Knut is no stranger to the education scene. Traditionally, they have been the go-to union for teachers working in primary schools. On the other hand, we have Kuppet, the Kenya organisation of Post primary Education Teachers, representing teachers in secondary schools and other educational environments. It’s like a big family of educators, all with their unique roles and responsibilities.

Now, for the practical stuff. As JSS teachers, you will be required to pay the same monthly dues as your primary school colleagues who are already part of Knut. And let’s not forget about the 2% contribution from your base income. It’s all part of being a member and supporting the union’s endeavors.

In April, a wave of joy swept through the JSS teaching community as they received their well-deserved remuneration. It’s always a good feeling to see your hard work rewarded, isn’t it?

So, dear JSS teachers, welcome to the Knut family! It’s an exciting new chapter, and we hope that this union will bring about positive changes and solutions to any lingering labor disputes. Together, let’s make the education sector a better place for all teachers and students alike.
