New kitchen cabinets were painted black and they came out with a sticky feeling. It has been over a week and they are still sticky. Is there anything that will
take the stickiness out. Semigloss latex was used.

OUCH! You have a genuine concern. My only recommendation is to get the painter and the dealer from whom the coating was purchased together to resolve this issue.

Bad batch of latex paint.. ask for "japan dryer" at the paint store.. It may help harden the paint. They may also sell a product specifically for hardening latex paints.. Mist it in the sticky paint…
