SAN JOSE, California (AP) - Some 400 support staff for a large Northern California court went on strike over stalled contract negotiations.

Court clerks, secretaries and other Santa Clara County court staff refused to work Wednesday, prompting managers to fill in where they could. Managers warned of delays and hearing cancelations.

The union representing striking workers said many of its members have not received a raise in eight years and all have been working without a contract for two years.

The union turned down an offer of a 4.5 percent raise. Managers say the court is operating with a $5 million deficit.
