BENCLOWICZ, José Daniel. Apuntes para pensar la situación del movimiento obrero en el interior de la Argentina durante la primera mitad del siglo XX: El caso de la provincia de Salta. Ciclos hist. econ. soc. [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.39, pp. 00-00. ISSN 1851-3735.
¿Was there a union tradition before peronism in Salta? The province was not much affected by the import substitution process developed in Argentina since the 1930s, and its industrialization level has always been pretty bounded in general. This fact, and the dominant representation of the provincial society as clearly conservative, has lead to a negative answer to that question. This study offers a different point of view: the data suggest that during the first half of the XXth century a labor movement was developed in Salta, in which independent and left tendencies existed. Those tendencies, while not dominant as in the main urban centers of the country, were influent considering the level of economic development in Salta during that period. The study of the action of these sectors contributes to the knowledge of the origins of the labor movement in Salta and in Argentina's provinces, and this article is thought as a first step in that direction.
