CAMARERO, Hernán. A CGT for the democratic and anti-fascist Popular Front?: The Communist Party of Argentina and the union movement during World War II. Av. Cesor [online]. 2020, vol.17, n.22, pp.149-171. ISSN 1514-3899.

In this article we propose an examination of the relation of the argentine Communist Party with the General Confederation of Labor (CGT) between 1937 and 1943, that is, the previous and firts years of the Second World War. It is a key period to understand the communist attempts to apply the strategy of the "Popular Front" in the perimeters of the trade union organization, which allows us to think about its real conditions of realization and the contexts in which such a political enterprise was deployed. This study not only aims to provide a greater understanding of the performance of communism in the trade union area but also to illuminate the relationship that this force had with the other workers movement with which it tried to coalition or confront, such as syndicalism and socialism. There is a bibliography that referred to this communist presence in the trade union movement, but whitout these specific temporary and thematic cuts. It is still necessary to deepen the work of reconstructing this process, in particular, of the characterizations and positions of the CP in terms of its objective of achieving the leadership of the workers movement.

Palabras clave : Communism; Workers' movement; Argentina; Popular front.
