Workers’ Protests in Northern Portugal in the Transition from the Monarchy to the I Republic

Célia Maria Taborda da Silva


The working class begins to be expressed in Portuguese society in the late nineteenth century, with the development of industrial capitalism and the consequent increase of workers in the industry. But it is in the early twentieth century that strengthens trade unionism and, with him, the statement of the labor movement. From here the working class associations distance themselves from the Socialist Party and betting in the labor union movement as a privileged vehicle of action, rescuing from the strike as a means of social demands. The Republic (1910) is in response to changing desires felt by the working class, watching up, from 1911, to a change in the structure and conduct of the union movement, which resulted in a series of strikes and completely destabilized the republican regime.
