KUPPET Warns TSC Terribly About JSS Instructors

The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education  Teachers (KUPPET) Secretary-General, Akelo Misori, hinted to possible  discontent inside the union when he  recently expressed his displeasure with the  way junior secondary school (JSS)  teachers were treated.

Misori expressed the union’s hesitation to take legal action because she believed it  would be “too late.” Rather, he urged stakeholders to “wait and see how we will react early next year,”  subtly hinting at a possible response. There are concerns over the union’s approach and possible effects on JSS  instructors in light of this enigmatic statement.

At the core of the issue is the alleged mistreatment of JSS teachers, a sentiment echoed by Misori. The Secretary-General contends that these educators have not been treated well, leaving their professional future uncertain. The imminent expiration of JSS intern teachers’ contracts at the end of this month adds urgency to the situation.

To further complicate matters, it was earlier announced by Nancy Macharia, the Chief Executive Officer of the instructors Service Commission (TSC), that JSS intern instructors will have the opportunity to extend their contracts beginning in January. Misori’s comment, however, highlights the difficulties the JSS interns have in obtaining job stability by implying that they have been working hard to be confirmed as Permanent and Pensionable instructors.

As tension simmers, the union’s decision not to pursue legal avenues raises questions about the efficacy of alternative strategies. The union’s defiance and determination to act in its members’ best interest indicate a potentially confrontational approach in the near future.

With the clock ticking on the JSS intern teachers’ contracts, the education community awaits the promised reaction from KUPPET early next year. The outcome will undoubtedly shape the narrative surrounding the plight of JSS teachers, shedding light on the broader challenges faced by educators in the Kenyan education system.

The JSS teachers are currently in a precarious situation where they are torn between  the prospect of a contract extension and their desire for permanent, pensionable jobs. All eyes will be on the union’s next move and how it affects the future of these  committed instructors as January draws near.
