HAIDAR, Victoria. Enemies or guarantors of freedom? : The problematization of trade union issue in the field of Argentine liberalism (1955-1976). Trab. soc. [online]. 2019, n.32, pp.125-142. ISSN 1514-6871.

This article aims to rebuild the divergent and even contradictory readings that the “trade union question” aroused in the field of Argentine liberalism between 1955 and 1976; pointing out also the convergent arguments and valuations. On the basis of a review of a corpus of documents, we distinguished three positions of enunciation: firstly, we consider the work of spreading the neoliberal position that is radically “anti-union”, carried out by the “Centro de Estudios sobre la Libertad”. Secondly, we characterize the “pragmatic” point of view which, in relation to trade unions, held Álvaro Alsogaray, an economist and politician identified with the also neo-liberalism’ “social market economy” approach. Thirdly, we discuss the reflections that, pondering the contribution that unions can make to the configuration of a pluralist democracy, as well as the dangers of their ascendant political influence, were articulated by a set of young catholic-liberal intellectuals that were formed in the field of law and social sciences.

Palabras clave : Trade Union Question; Liberalism; Neoliberalism; Argentina; Post-peronism.
