Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) has threatened to boycott work over medical cover contract with Minet Insurance Brokers.
Kuppet secretary general Akelo Misori claimed that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has continuously renewed the agreement with the insurance firm despite limited services.
Mr Misori complained that outpatient services, which are supposed to be limitless under the contract, have collapsed forcing the over 70,000 teachers covered by the scheme to foot their bills after being attended to.
He also stated that most health providers have withdrawn from Minet, hampering the efficiency of delivery of medical services to the teachers.
“We are demanding that the commission does not renew the agreement that is due in the month of October 2018, failure to which we shall call the teachers out on work boycott, ” said Mr Misori on Wednesday in Nairobi.
