Prior to their departure, other workers packed their bags and fled. According to the director-general of the Quebec Workers and Agricultural Workers Support Network (RATTMAQ), to date, 11 workers have asked to leave and seven have fled. The workers who denounced their conditions asked not to be identified out of fear of repercussions.
