The migrants say Coquera Real did not pay them after declaring bankruptcy last month. The government warned the group they had until Wednesday to evict the premises, which they have occupied since mid-December.
Group spokesman Francisco Ogilio insists they are not leaving. He says he worked for the company for 10 years and expects to be paid.
The Dominican government has not said what action it will take to evacuate the group. The Health Department sent officials to evaluate the camp's sanitary conditions this week.
