VALHALLA - Hundreds of Westchester Community College employees protested today over the fact that they’ve been working without a contract, saying negotiations are not happening fast enough.

About 300 WCC employees have been out of a contract for almost 4 1/2 years, and they are hoping their demonstration will change that. The Civil Service Employees Association has been in talks with college officials three times to no avail.

College officials won't go into detail about negotiations, but say they are hopeful they will come to an agreement. Employees say one of the sticking points during the negotiations is salary, since they haven't had a raise or cost-of-living adjustment since 2010.

The next talk between the college and the union is scheduled for May 1.
