Johannesburg - Workers at the Village Main Reef [JSE:VIL] Buffelsfontein gold mine, near Klerksdorp, went on an unprotected strike on the Monday night shift, the company said on Tuesday.

"None of the category four to eight employees forming part of the [National Union of Mineworkers] bargaining unit reported for work," said the company's CEO Marius Saaiman of its operations south west of Johannesburg.

The company would get a court interdict, as it considered this an unprotected strike - one started without following procedures in terms of the Labour Relations Act.

Management also planned to speak to employees and their representatives to resolve the situation.

NUM spokesperson Lesiba Seshoka said he would establish what the issues were before commenting.
