Motorola's job cut meets joint resistance in Nanjing

(People's Daily Online)

08:17, August 28, 2012

The disturbance met by Motorola Mobility while laying off employees in Beijing has just come to an end, but its job cut in Nanjing is also meeting a joint resistance from the employees as the company will lay off most of the workers. Currently, the two sides are confronting each other.

According to the senior vice president of the Motorola Mobility Meng Pu, the Global Research and Development Center of the company will keep only three places in San Francisco, Chicago and Beijing after being reconstructed.

The Nanjing sub-company will be set as a market maintenance department after completing the operation of laying off employees, and therefore, most researching and developing workers there will lose their jobs. The company has not disclosed the exact number of the employees to be laid off, but the employees who received the dismissal notices refused to sign them.

On the afternoon of Aug. 24, a relevant worker from the research and development center in Nanjing told the reporter that currently he has not heard that a colleague of him signed the notice.

The employees of the company even have commissioned 13 employee representatives to negotiate with the company. According to sources, the employee representatives of the research and development center in Nanjing said that, by 1:00 am of Aug. 23, no employee had signed the dismissal agreement and the representatives' suggestions had also been refused. A relevant person in charge of the China Region of the Motorola Mobility said that the two sides currently are still communicating, but he did not give a deadline.
