The Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) has given a breakdown of pay increment it expects the government to implement this month.

According to the Knut's list, school principals will be the biggest winners of the pay rise taking, home Sh16,503 more.

The projected increment reflects the implementation of the third phase of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) that will cost the government Sh13 billion.

The union's computation has been prompted by reports that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) might not implement the pay deal because of a recent court order against it.

The commission has filed an application seeking to reverse an earlier order in favour of Knut on appraisals, and promotion of teachers. TSC boss, Nancy Macharia argued that if the order is implemented, it would be difficult to effect the third phase of the CBA which runs from 2019 to 2020.

The teachers' union has however dismissed the application saying it is a tactic by TSC not to implement the CBA.

In Knut's pay structure seen by The Standard, school principals in job group M will receive a salary increment of between Sh16,010 and Sh16,503.
