Treasury vow to settle lecturers’ payment deal

Treasury has been directed to make additional budgetary allocations to settle the pending varsities salary row.

Employment and Labour Relations Court judge Maureen Anyango on Thursday said a decision by the Salaries and Remuneration Commission to cap the budget for university lecturers at Sh8.8 billion was not sufficient to implement their collective bargaining agreements signed last year. 

As a result, she directed SRC, to work together with the Inter Public Universities Councils Consultative Forum (IPUCCF) committee, the Ministry  of Education and Treasury to make necessary additional  budgetary  allocations to enable public universities implement the CBAs. 

The court confirmed that the computation by IPUCCF was accurate and that the figure of Sh8.8 billion is not sufficient to implement the CBAs.

This is so because it did not include the annual increments and the resultant pension liabilities payable by IPUCCF. According to the court records, the original proposal by the unions was to cost Sh38.5 billion to implement.
