WE WILL NOT BACKDOWN, THIKA TEACHERS WARN THE GOVERNMENT.

Thika  branch Kenya National Union of Teachers  Executive Secretary Joe Mungai Ngige has said Thika teachers will support the call by the union's leadership to boycott classes if their salaries are not increased. Speaking yesterday at Thika Town to members of Thika KNUT Branch, Mungai said that the court ruling on teachers’ salaries and allowances was long overdue and teachers were not ready to negotiate further about the issue.

He added that failure by the government to honour the Industrial Court ruling on the increment of their salaries will prompt teachers to down their tools.

“We will not go back to class unless the government honours the Supreme Court decision to increase our salaries," said Mungai.

He called on parents to brace for a difficulty time if the government failed to implement the increment saying the teachers would take a tough stand.

“Parents should not take their children to public schools when third term resumes if the government does not implement the ruling. No teacher will be in class," said Mungai.

He however said KNUT was not opposed to the government of the day but added that the union had to exercise its role of fighting for the rights of teachers.
