With the economic crisis of the 1990s, two of the countrys most ambitious labor leaders Francisco Hernndez Jurez of the Mexican Telephone Workers (STRM) and Elba Esther Gordillo of the Teachers Union along with other CT and independent unions created the Forum: Unions Face the Nation in 1996, the first sign of the impending split in the Congress of Labor.
Subsequently, in December 2004 Gordillo, led a breakaway of twenty-one of thirty unions from the FSTSE and formed the Democratic Federation of Unions of Public Servants (FEDESSP). In 2008 Gordillo made two political moves to strengthen her position as leader of the rightwing of Mexicos labor federations. First, she signed a pact with President Cadern called the Alliance for Quality in Education (ACE) bring her union into a closer relationship with the PAN government. In the summer of 2008, the National Coordinating Committee (la CNTE), an organization within the Mexican Teachers Union (el SNTE), launched a movement to stop the Alliance for Quality Education (ACE), a pact between Elba Esther Gordillo, head of el SNTE, and Mexican President Felipe Caldern. Caldern' alliance with Gordillo threatens to weaken the Mexican Teachers Union by bringing it closer to the conservative National Action Party, while both Caldern and Gordillo would like to crush the militant opposition teachers of the National Coordinating Committee. Indeed, following Calderns victory it is widely believed that the union received large amounts of money and there is no doubt that Elba Esther Gordillo gave away hummers to the general secretaries of locals throughout the country (although she subsequently clarified that they were to be raffled off).

Elba Esther Gordillo has led the Mexican Teachers Union, which she heads, into a formal alliance with President Felipe Calderns National Action Party (PAN) government.
The agreement called the Alliance for Quality in Education, signed on May 15, the Day of the Teacher, will bring Mexico the fair and efficient modern educational system that the country demands, said President Caldern. The signing of the agreement was a major event and political initiative involving President Caldern, Josefina Vzquez Mota, Secretary of Public Education, and Gordillo, head of the Teachers Union, as well as other important figures from the government, from public universities, secondary and primary education, businesspeople and Catholic educators. The Congress was attended by 449 delegates from 20 states who debated future strategies for confronting Gordillo in heated sessions. One faction in la CNTE, led by Local 18 in Michoacn, wants to call a meeting of all of those who oppose Gordillo, including some of her former allies. The other faction, led by Local 22 in Oaxaca, argues that la CNTE should remain faithful to its own vision of the democratic control of the union and not work with those who have been part of her operation. La CNTE leaders argue that Gordillo is on the defensive, her hand-picked state leaders being challenged in Baja California, Durango, Chihuahua, Veracruz and Puebla. She also faced resistance in the state of Chiapas, Guanajuato, Tamaulipas, Yucatan, Zacatecas, and the Federal District.
