Mexico City, Nov 11 (EFE).- The former leader of Mexico's powerful SNTPRM oil workers unions, Joaquin Hernandez Galicia, died Monday in the northeastern city of Tampico, media outlets said. He was 91.
The death of the man known as "La Quina" came around 6 a.m., two weeks after he was hospitalized.
Hernandez Galicia's reign over the SNTPRM ended abruptly on Jan. 10, 1989, when Mexican President Carlos Salinas de Gortari ordered his arrest in a military operation that bypassed the normal legal channels.
