S.Africa Village Main issues ultimatum to strikers

JOHANNESBURG, Oct 12 (Reuters) - South Africa's Village Main Reef said on Friday it would fire any striking workers that failed to report for the night shift on Sunday Oct. 14.

Some 1,700 miners at the gold producer downed tools last month in one of the wildcat strikes to have hit the mining sector.
