The union said they have been provoked beyond repair and noted that all teachers are being mobilised to down their tools by start of next month.
“We take the move by Public Service minister Dalmas Otieno as a deliberate move to derail the course of teachers.
It is grossly immoral for the Government to mess up with teachers to that level,” said Knut national chairman Wilson Sossion.
Dalmas announced early this week that the Treasury has released Sh6.8 billion to cater for new salaries for civil servants this month.
He said the increment will range from between 12 per cent and 22 per cent and is set to benefit 133,322 civil servants and 1,577 officers of the National Youth Service.
Mr Sossion said Knut signed a 1997 salary review agreement that has not been honoured to date.
“We had intensive and very frank negotiations between government as was directed by the then president. It has not been honoured but they consider people who did not even ask for it,” he said.
Under the agreement, school principals and primary heads should be awarded half of their basic salary towards responsibility allowances.
