OVER 100 secondary school bursars from Busia County have demanded for a unified pay.
They said it was "irrational" for the lowest paid bursar to get Sh8000 while the highest receives Sh40,000.
They were speaking in Busia after a one-week workshop of account clerks and bursars. The seminar was opened by County Director Education Mary Atalitsa.
The workers said there was a high labour turnover in schools due to poor pay and linked the trend to the low academic standards in the region.
They demanded for the implementation of a bill that calls for hiring of all support staff on permanent basis.
The bursars and clerks pledged to support any presidential candidate who will assure them that their demands will be addressed after March 4.
