The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) and Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) will soon find themselves without members as teachers chose to move out of the two unions accusing the management in those unions of self-seeking.

KNUT and KUPPET are very vocal in terms of fighting for the rights of teachers but it seems members are not convinced that they are doing the right job; this is occasioned by the reducing influence on government policies that the two have had over the past few years.

According to information seen by the editor of this site, teachers are moving out of KNUT and KUPPET for the above reason.

Teachers have taken advantage of the window in which the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) required that they validate their membership in an online portal.

Hi Nyakundi,

Teachers in Kenya have moved out of their unions en mass after their employer the TSC required them to validate union membership. This came as a shocker to the unions who seem to favour only administrators in every negotiating table.

Teachers are irked the fact that only Headteachers and their deputies will benefit with Salary increment in July while teachers expect a salary cut. A teacher my source contacted expressed his reservation for being in toothless unions. “Siwezi kuwa union ambazo hazinitetei. How can pay for two insurances ie NHIF & AON while unions dont seem to bother?”
KNUT and KUPPET will soon find themselves memberless.
