Cosatu on Wednesday, said the farmworkers' strike in the Western Cape has been suspended for one week.

The union federation's provincial secretary Tony Ehrenreich said the strike would resume next Wednesday unless Agri SA agreed to certain conditions.

Agri SA also needed to honor their previous commitments to local-level agreements.

If the agricultural trade association did not agree, the strike would resume, either generally or in affected towns.

 The strike was suspended in December, but resumed on Wednesday last week in various towns in the province.

At least 180 people had been arrested in connection with the protests since Wednesday last week.
