Revolution within the Revolution
Stanford University Press

This chapter traces the changes in trade unions from 1910 to 1920. The sometimes ignored and usually combated unions of the late Porfiriato were a far cry from the wealthy and powerful organizations that came to control the shop floor and the mill towns after the revolution. The shifts can be best understood by looking at textile unions as they advanced through four stages: (1) Porfirian unions; (2) from the opening of revolution to the Textile Convention, 1910–12; (3) revolutionary consolidation, 191–16; and (4) the origins of organized labor, 191–20. In each phase, trade unions were both protagonists and products of the social events that created modern Mexico.
