IT'S BACK TO SCHOOL ON MONDAY AS MINISTRY RELEASES NEWS TERM DATES.

The Ministry of Education has announced new term dates for third term after the Employment and Labour Relations Court suspended the teachers’ strike for 90 days. In addition, it has directed that no schools should levy any extra fees on parents in the pretext of covering costs occasioned by the pay dispute.

Consequently, 3rd term has been extended by a week and there will be no half-term break. This means that schools will resume Monday, September 28th and close on November 20th.

The Court further warned the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) from victimizing any teacher and pay them their salaries for the month of September which they have been on strike.

In the ruling, Justice Nelson Abuodha ordered TSC and the Labour Cabinet Secretary to appoint an independent conciliator in 30 days to resolve the teachers’ salary increment dispute.

The Judge said that after 90 days, any party would be free to raise issues. In his ruling, Justice Abuodha said the ongoing teachers’ strike is legal and declined to issue orders prohibiting it.
