There are celebrations everywhere as teachers expect to smile all the way to the bank.On Thursday the Employment and Labour Relations Court directed that the over 280,000 teachers in the country share out the increment that will be spread over four years.

The court directed Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to increase the annual allocation for teaching wage bill by 50 to 60 per cent which means that the salaries for teachers will level that of other civil servants

Officials of the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) and the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) termed the ruling as a huge milestone and a new dawn to the teaching fraternity.

The increment will force the National Treasury to factor in at least an additional Sh59.5 billion to cater for the increment.Curently Treasury allocates teachers Sh119 billion.
