The grape harvesting season has begun at De Doorns in the Western Cape and some farmers say they are already feeling the pinch due to the on-going strike.
 Farmers say their workers have accepted a wage hike, but are being intimidated not to work.
In Clanwilliam, workers have accepted a wage offer of R110 a day.

Spokesperson for one of the farms in De Doorns Renaldo van Hoogstraten says the employer of that specific farm called his workers together and asked how they can solve the problem. 

They agreed to a wage of R80 per day and they put it on paper. 

They started working again.

One worker walked out of the meeting and today another four joined in the strike again.
