KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion said they were forced to rethink their negotiation deadline of Tuesday following an appeal from the Treasury.
"We are human beings, these are negotiations, we wouldn't have been so belligerent not to consider that letter," he said.
The negotiations, he continued to say, would therefore resume on Friday, October 24, "in a meeting which we believe will be the last, if not among the last," he said.
The compromise was reached following a six-hour-long meeting between the union and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) that KNUT had touted as the be all and end all of the negotiations.
"We had just wanted to make it clear to the government that we would not tolerate any delaying tactics but what is a few more days given we've been fighting for this Collective Bargaining Agreement since 2012? Sossion posed.
Sossion on the other hand said the exams would go uninterrupted until October 24 when they would again meet the TSC.
"But we are confident the government is aware just how critical these negotiations are," he said.

But, Wilson Sossion chairman of the KNUT says the administration has reneged on its part of the agreement.
"That is political mischief by some quarters of the government who don't want to face reality," said Sossion. "Yes, the strike is legal because the matter at hand has been a longstanding dispute between us and the government. I can assure that the teachers of this country are prepared to stay out of their classrooms for as long as it takes."
Sossion says the KNUT suspended a previous strike last February after a public appeal. But he said the current strike is continuing because government has yet to implement the 1997 agreement despite the goodwill and commitment that the teachers have demonstrated.
Sossion says there is no need to re-negotiate the agreement since it was signed in 1997. He says the administration should keep its part of the agreement.
"What the government should do is to outline how it is going to implement the CBA [Collective Bargaining Agreement], rather than to purport to invite us to the negotiation table," Sossion said. "So the government is being mischievous, to say the least."
KNUT demands payment of allowances set out in a 1997 collective bargaining agreement, which amount to shillings 41 billion [$478,692,630].
Sossion also criticized a government plan to provide laptop computers to public school students. He said the government should instead allocate funds to resolve the impasse with teachers.

NAIROBI, JULY 02, 2013 (CISA) -A spot check across the country on July 2 showed that teachers heeded to the call of their leaders to defy an industrial court ruling to report back to class even after the employer, Teachers service Commission (TSC) ordered school heads to take roll calls and those found absent be disciplined for disobeying court order to end strike. The industrial court had ruled on July 1 that teachers return to work.
