The attorney representing Deschutes County Deputy District Attorneys is alleging the County is not bargaining in good faith.   Attorney Becky Gallagher is referring to last week's unanimous decision by Commissioners to delay voting on a proposed contract until after the first of the year.   Commissioner Dennis Luke disagrees. “I think the County did bargain in good faith. The bargaining teams on our side did put it on the record. The bargaining team on our side recommended approval of the contract. The Board has not voice any opposition to the contract itself.” Luke says the only decision the Commissioners made was to delay making a decision until after the first of the year.   Since the Deputies will not have a contract when incoming District Attorney Patrick Flaherty takes office after January first, four of those deputies have been told they will not be retained in the new administration. The major stipulation on the proposed contract is that deputies can only be fired for "just cause". Flaherty told Commissioners he believes this contract is an attempt to nullify the election and prevent him from selecting the team he wants.
