The teachers' strike scheduled to take place in January is still on, Kenya National Union of Teachers Secretary-General Wilson Sossion has said.
During a press conference on Sunday, Mr Sossion said a conciliatory meeting with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) yesterday failed to address the four critical issues forming the foundation of their strike.
Mr Sossion, in a Sunday memo to executive secretaries, said: "Bring to the attention of every member that the strike action commences exactly on the opening date of the new term. No teacher should report for the new school term until the strike is called off formally by the secretary-general through the vote of the National Executive Council as provided for in our constitution."
He added that the industrial action is legal.
The unresolved issues are: promotions and transfers of teachers, performance contracting and professional development modules.
