When he was a child, he worked as a shoeshine boy, street vendor and factory worker to help his family finances. During a recession, which is also followed by a military coup in Brazil in 1964, he found jobs with the Metalworks Union at Villares in São Bernardo Do Campo, which is an industrial suburb of São Paulo. He then joined with Metalworkers Union and in 1972 he left his job at the factory to work full-time at the Union. While work for the Union, his level rose slightly and he then was elected as the Union's president in 1975 and re-elected in 1978. When he was elected as president of the Union, he launched a movement for wage increases which are against the economic policies of the military regime that took him into the national spotlight. His movements are glazed with a series of attacks from 1978 to 1980, which in turn makes him got arrested and charged with violating the Act on the grounds of national security.
