Abstract: The paper examines the labor policy followed by the government of Eleazar Lopez Contreras (1936-1941) for the purpose to precise that there was a socio-economic change, resulting from the formation of a new institutional framework that allowed meet the Workers demands. For first time was given a confluence of formal constraints, informal constraints and coercion mechanisms that looked for the welfare of working men, as in the previous government (1908-1935), although efforts were made to develop limitations, all formalistic, the coercion mechanisms required for compliance with the limitations are obviated. The analysis is from the point of view of Douglas North’s neo institutionalism.
