TERRA, Paulo Cruz. Strikes and struggles for rights: the coachmen and carters stoppages in Rio de Janeiro (1870-1906). Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.68, pp.237-251. ISSN 1806-9347.

Considering that the strikes constituted important means of struggle for what workers considered as their rights, the purpose of this paper is to analyze the stoppages made by coachmen and carters in Rio de Janeiro, between 1870 and 1906. During this period, transport workers formed the category that made more strikes in the Brazil's capital, and its stoppages appear as important spheres to understand what rights were being required, and the ways used to achieve them.

Keywords : strikes; rights; Rio de Janeiro; transport.
