(Reuters) - Miners ended a strike at South African bullion producer Gold Fields on Friday, while President Jacob Zuma pledged to speed up investment to ease grievances fuelling the worst labor unrest since apartheid. But a month-long strike at Anglo American Platinum, the world's top producer of the precious metal, showed no sign of ending. Workers were also still off the job at Harmony Gold's Kusasalethu mine. With the government calling on miners to return to work, companies have become emboldened to issue sacking ultimatums to thousands of illegal strikers, a hard-ball negotiating tactic that appears to be having some effect.
