BENCLOWICZ, José Daniel. The struggle against the privatization of YPF in Tartagal and Mosconi.: 1988-1991. Trab. soc. [online]. 2010, n.15, pp. 93-110. ISSN 1514-6871.
This paper analyzes the struggles against the privatization of YPF in Tartagal and Mosconi (Salta province), between 1988 and 1991. Those struggles were very important, and concluded in September 1991 with a popular rising, one of the first in the country against the neoliberal policies. The study of those protests indicates the existence of a combative tradition between the oil workers, where the left sectors played an important role. Besides, it indicates that the support towards the privatization of YPF of the pro-government union direction in the region occurred despite an important opposition inside and outside the union.
