JSS teachers assigned a union. Starting this academic year, junior secondary school teachers will be under the Kenya national union of teachers (KNUT). This is according to the teachers service commission’s directive. This follows after the commission (TSC) issued a new directive concerning the subject.
From today henceforth, all junior secondary school teachers must be registered as members of the Kenya national union of teachers. This extends from the already mentioned teachers service commission’s directive.
As a matter of fact, it is believed that the rumours about the labour conflicts that the teachers were involved in has been cleared.
In addition, it is important to note that traditionally, the Kenya national union of teachers has been a body representing primary school teachers. This therefore means that junior secondary school instructors will be merged with primary school teachers in the union.

On the other hand, the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) is an association in the country that soeaks on behalf of secondary school teachers across education institutions in the country.
As a result , junior secondary school educators are expected to operate as primary teachers do to the commission. They will therefore be required to pay the same due each month and also contribute 2% of their salary to the union as just as their colleagues.
Earlier, in April this year, so many teachers working in junior secondary schools were included in the payment plan.
In summary, the union is now expected to represent both primary school and junior secondary school teachers in Kenya schools. In addition, all teachers under the union have to adhere to its regulations as well as its terms of service. This is important because it is an aid in ensuring teachers’ smooth stay under the commission.
