What you need to know:

  • The pension will be paid out to teachers who had been in service when the government agreed to pay salary increases of up  to 150 per cent in five phases beginning from 1997.

  • But the government reneged after the first payment, only for the deal to be renegotiated in 2003 and the agreement implemented until 2007.

  • TSC was also ordered to pay costs of the suit in the High Court and the Court of Appeal.

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has completed a review of the pensions of the 23,811 teachers who retired in 1997.
