The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has been dealt a big blow after a labour court in Nairobi ordered that they should not severe their ties with Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut).
This came after KNUT had taken the teacher's employers to court over plans to end their 51 years relationship.
In a tweet on Wednesday, KNUT revealed that they had won against TSC in court awaiting the conclusion of their case which is in court.
''The Labour court sitting in Nairobi has ordered that the recognition agreement between @TSC_KE and @TEACHERSinKENYA remains in place until the case seeking to nullify the notice is heard and determined,'' said Knut.
On November 4, 2019, TSC had issued KNUT with a termination letter after a strained relationship between the two bodies.
Judge Maureen Onyango of the Labour Court ordered that the case will be heard and determined on 11 December 2019.
“That in the meantime, the notice of termination ins suspended pending hearing and determination of the preliminary objection,” ordered Justice Onyango as quoted by Daily Nation.
TSC moved in to call for the end of their union claiming that KNUT had fallen short of the required number of members in the union according to their agreement.
