Investigations into the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet propose that this period corresponds to a time of repression, specifically of the leftist political parties and labor unions, and imposition of the neoliberal system throughout society. None of these studies have raised the issue of the informer in their main research objectives. Thus, we intend to ff1 this gap by analyzing and describing the subjects and events associated with the informer in the Bakers' Union of La Serena (SPLS) between 1973 and 1987. In this way, and while the repressive and the impositions elements characteristic of the state of terrorism lived in Chile during the years 1973 and 1990 may have been sufficient for the disintegration of the members of SPLS, we believe that the coup de grace for this division was the unpunished act of the historical subject "the Informer". Our primary sources are personal interviews with active members of the Bakers' Union on the dates indicated, the book of minutes of meetings and register book of the SPLS members. One of our results indicates that the informer that more damage leadership caused to the SPLS was an member informer, who from inside of the SPLS gave leadership sensitive information to the industry leaders.
