The recognition of the rights of Puerto Rican workers was the result of many years of labor struggles, combined with the maturation of the rule of law in Puerto Rico and theadoption of U.S. labor laws. This process is formed from a series of social, political and economic framed mainly between the last decades of the nineteenth and twentiethcenturies. As a result led to the institutionalization of unions and labor law training in Puerto Rico. You can identify early signs of the struggles of workers for betterworking conditions on the island in the claims found in the paper The Ten Commandments of Free Men of Ramón Emeterio Betances, main manager of the Grito de Lares.

During the years of Spanish colonialism, workers' associations, which make up theengine of change in the workplace were considered conspiratorial activities. However, there are records of a series of strikes by workers around 1895. Upon arrival of theAmericans to the island, began to introduce new laws relating to workers' rights. It recognized the right to organize workers and go on strike. He then founded the RegionalFederation of Workers, a labor union in Puerto Rico. Shortly after, following a demonstration of the Regional Federation of Workers, the first of May 1899, International WorkersDay, the military governor General Guy V. Henry issued General Order No. 54, which recognized for the first time in Puerto Rico the eight hours.
