Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) officials has accused Teachers Service Commission (TSC) of delaying the disbursement of Sh17.7 billion members were offered as allowance in their back-to-work formula after their strike.
The union's Bungoma branch officials said the Government through legal notice 534 of 1997 had agreed that salary increment and allowances must to be in tandem with other civil servants.
The County Executive Secretary Kenneth Ngangah accused TSC of failing to expedite the disbursement of the cash even after Treasurey had released it.
"We have been patient enough and are putting TSC on notice to release it before we take another action," said the unionist.
Ngangah said there has been no communication from TSC over the issue and asked TSC officials to tell teachers the truth."We are marshalling teachers to start a mother of all strikes if TSC will not disclose on when the money will be disbursed and to end the wrangles they should communicate to us as fast as possible,"said Ngangah.
