Striking teachers will not be paid for the days they have not worked and those who will not resume duty by Friday will be struck off the payroll.

Teachers Service Commission chairman Lydia Nzomo on Monday said it would no longer be possible to pay teachers who were not working.

“TSC will close payroll by September 18 and those who wish to report back to work may do so but will only be paid for the days worked.

“Those who will not have heeded the call by September 18 will be removed from the payroll,” she said.

She said the TSC’s 47 county directors had submitted details of teachers who have been on duty since the school term began.
