Abstract

The conclusion in 1938 of the pact between the two leading trade union associations of republican Spain, the anarcho-syndicalist National Confederation of Labour (CNT) and the General Union of Workers (UGT), which was controlled by socialists and communists, became an important moment in the ideological and the political evolution of the main socio-political forces of the Spanish Republic. The pact negotiations were conducted between the leaderships of both professional centers for several months and ended with the signing of the document in March of 1938. The materials stored in the archival collection of Red International of Labour Unions at RGASPI make it possible to track the parties' positions in the negotiations, their plans, proposals and amendments to the partner’s projects, to trace the course of negotiations, to identify the scope and limits of the compromise reached, as well as to assess its consequences.
