The present work has as main object to study the press union in Ourinhos, since the character of potential resistance that communication takes the offensive against employer, serving to some extent the demands of the working class and analyze the potential interaction with workers in the information, dialogue, preserving the memory and the construction of collective identity. For this purpose, we analyze the speeches in the press union ourinhense, how it is organized and what it reveals about the political and ideological positions of the union. This proposal is consistent with the attempts of rapprochement between labor studies and geography, with the definitions of the spatial practices of capital and their relations with workers, we can see in the press union bias or collaboration of resistance to capitalist development, leading into account the complexities and nuances that involve such radically opposed positions.(AU)
