La Unión General de Trabajadores (UGT) y la Confederación Francesa Democrática del Trabajo (CFDT): nuevas ejecutivas, nuevo socio sindical en Francia (1971-1978)

Abstract : The union action defended by the Unión General de Trabajadores (UGT) throughout its period of exile involved giving priority to work in the major trade union institutions of the Western world, while maintaining only a to-ken presence in Spain. This approach could have presented a serious ob-stacle after the dictator’s death in the struggle to reestablish representation of the Spanish workers by Comisiones Obreras (CCOO) and in particular Unión Sindical Obrera, since they shared common ideological ground. Using a series of print sources and archival material held at the Fran-cisco Largo Caballero Foundation, we examine the relations which the UGT established with the Confédération Française Démocratique du Travail. On the one hand, it sought to safeguard its leadership role in Spanish socialist unionism at the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions and the European Trade Union Confederation. On the other, internally, the UGT’s new leaders sought support from the French trade union confederation to recover lost ground and disarm the poten-tial of its great rival, both on the domestic and international scenes.
