LEYES, Rodolfo. Glimpses of new subject: Workers salting conflicts and the formation of the working class at Entre Ríos (1854-1868). Mundo agrar. [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.30. ISSN 1515-5994.

The objective of this paper is to show the existence of worker struggle at Entre Ríos, from the wage dispute in the salted meet manufacture between 1854 and 1868. Collaterally, we question the date of genesis of the Argentinean workers movement. The reconstruction of the conflicts was made whit variety source: chronics of the travelers, official documentation, and principally, analysis of collected letters of Justo José de Urquiza’s salted meet establishment. From the empiric evidence, that shows the confrontation between the workers and the bosses, we assert the existence of a proletarian in formation. We’ll analyze the struggle strategies and the boss mechanisms to surpass the situation postulated.

Keywords : Proletaritation; Capitalism; Working Class; Workers Struggles; Salted Meet Manufacture.
