Homa Bay ECD Teachers To Down Tools Over Pay Cut As Directed By The SRC

Learning in Homa Bay County could soon be disrupted as disgruntled Early Childhood Education (ECDE) teachers threaten to down their tools unless a decision that was made to reduce their salaries is reversed. The teachers have now given Governor Gladys Wanga’s administration a one-week notice after they confirmed that the county has implemented the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) recommendations to cut wages.

The teachers told Governor Gladys Wanga to act on their demand before it is too late. It was also reported that teachers in the county have had their terms of employment changed from permanent and pensionable to contract basis, putting them at risk of missing out on retirement benefits. Governor Wanga is among the first among Kenya’s 47 governors who is said to have implemented the directive from the CRS. Teachers were shocked when their January pay slips showed they got less money than usual.
