RIELLA, Alberto  and  MASCHERONI, Paola. La organización sindical de los trabajadores agrarios en Uruguay: origen, trayectoria y perspectivas. Mundo agrar. [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.43, pp.104.e1-104.e2. ISSN 1515-5994.

The uruguayan rural workers have historically presented a backlog in their labor rights and inside their trade union movement. The purpose of this article is to reflect on the present situation of rural workers trade unions in a political scenario of expansion and recognition of workers' rights and the opening of collective bargaining. First, we examine the different organizational experiences of rural workers and the significance for their collective actions. Then, the more permanent elements that hinder their unionization are discussed. Finally, we argue that despite the peculiarities of the historical context for the applicability of their labor rights, the rural trade union movement has not been able to consolidate.
