The La Pine Firefighter Paramedics and La Pine Rural Fire Protection Sistrict have agreed to a three year contract that pleases everyone.  La Pine Fire Chief Mike Supkis says it was a very long process, but they wanted to make sure it was a very strong contract.  "It was a long process, and I have to say it wasn't an easy process. Anything good is difficult. But it wasn't a hostile process. Both sides worked really hard on this. It took us 18 months; both the District and the firefighters come together on many issues. They really went through the old agreement with a fine toothed comb and really created a foundation for the next decade, if not more of how the labor-management relationships going to work in this Fire District."  Supkis says that there will be no cost of living adjustments in the first two years and the third year is limited to up to 3%; but firefighters will maintain their current benefits package, including updating health and wellness provisions.  There are 21 full time firefighter paramedics covered under this agreement.
