“Our county officials of the union have failed to fight for members working in hardship areas like Nyatike despite having the chance and ability to do so even through finances. There is dire need for change in the leadership of the union for the sake of saving teachers from frustrations that they face daily in their areas of work,” said Boro.
He said several teachers have faced intimidation from union officials over the move, and called on them to be strong.
It’s a pity that when teachers differ in ideologies with the union officials they receive intimidating threats from those they elected to represent their needs to their employer. Not every member is able to visit the TSC offices over their frustrations hence the need of a union.” Added Boro.

“We feel neglected by our own union leaders whom should have represented our plight yo the employer teachers service commission to enhance a better working environment for its members,” he said.
