The Deschutes County Commissioners vote to approve the Deputy D.A. union contract. The Commissioners needed to sign off on the agreement, since the attorneys are County employees. New Commissioner Tony DeBone says the decision was unanimous. “It had been a clear and decisive today. The three Commissioners to support this Union contract. And once the Union process started, by a group of people, it isn't up to us to accept a Union or not, it's up to us to accept a Union contract or not.” Commissioner Alan Unger supports the contract too. “I voted yes because it was management friendly contract. We went through the legal process to negotiation. It was either approve this or leave us open to binding arbitration.” Unger says this Union contract starts now and it is not retroactive.
