NAVA, Agustín. Social protest and labor conflicts. The case of the workers movement of Gran La Plata 1969-1972. Trab. soc. [online]. 2018, n.31, pp.365-392. ISSN 1514-6871.

This article aims to contribute to the study of the characteristics and dynamics presented by the movement of social protest and political radicalization that occurred in Argentina during the sixties and seventies. Focusing our attention on a particular kind of struggles that developed: those made by the working class in the period between 1969-1972, in the region of La Plata, Berisso and Ensenada, studying them through a methodology based primarily on the quantitative method. . The purpose of this paper is to present through a quantitative analysis, the general map of labor conflicts in the Gran La Plata, with the objective of establishing the main patterns, trends and characteristics of the struggles of the labor movement in the period 1969-1972. We have divided this paper into two sections. In the first of them a panorama of the labor conflict is presented in the most general sense we have used. At this point, the analysis is not limited to only one of the manifestations of conflictivity (strikes), that although they are central, do not exhaust themselves the complexity of union and political action of the working class. In the last section, however, we will deal specifically with the dynamics of strike activity of the regional labor movement, trying to establish the factors relevant to understand their movements and features.

Palabras clave : social protest; labor conflicts; quantitative analysis; Gran La Plata.
