Strike at Baidu's Guangdong offices on hold

Employees in Guangdong are back to work, pending
negotiations with the company. No new agreement
has been reached. The workers, who struck work by
staying at home or coming to the office and not working,
agreed to give the company two or three days to come
up with a response. The salespeople who struck work
are protesting an unrealistic increase in sales quotas, and
a 30% salary cut. They consider this a backdoor way of
getting them to leave. The company claims this is part
of an efficiency drive to motivate the workers by matching
incentives to productivity.
