Graduating students left in limbo as strike talks continue
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Talks have resumed between the Community of College of Philadelphia and its faculty and staff in hopes of avoiding a strike.

Action News has learned negotiations resumed between the union and the community college Wednesday at 11 a.m.

The union is seeking a new contract for 1,200 faculty and support staff.

College president Donald Generals has said if a strike happens, they would try to still hold classes.
