Teachers to Receive Salary Increment This Month As TSC Receives Sh9.1
A total of sh. 22.62 billion has been released by the National Treasury to pay for the salary increases that will take effect for teachers and other public employees in July.
The Treasury has already given the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) a total of sh. 9.1 billion, which will be utilised to carry out the pay hike plan for teachers and secretariat employees that was announced in July.
The Public Service Commission (PSC) has also received sh. 6.8 billion from the Treasury, which will be utilised to implement salary increases for federal personnel.
Together with other federal servants, TSC teachers will receive a pay rise in July. They will receive a wage increase of 7% to 10%.
President William Ruto revealed this on Friday, saying it was done to protect public employees from the challenging economic climate.
“I am aware that the SRC has proposed raising the pay for many cadres of public employees, including government officials. Therefore, we have decided that from tomorrow, the pay of our teachers, police officers, military personnel, and government employees will be increased by 7 to 10%, stated Ruto at the KICC launch of the new e-citizen platform.
The payrise effect will be reflected in the July payslips because the wage hike, as he stated, will be determined as of the first of July.
Teachers will receive a pay increase of 7% in the first fiscal year (2023-2024), 8% in the second (2024-2025), 9% in the third (2025-2026), and 10% in the fourth (2026-2027).
