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: Where Will Teacher Leader Go Now?
Elba Esther Gordillo: Where Will Teacher Leader Go Now? print icon PRINT-ready copy Elba Esther Gordillo, the powerful leader of the Mexican Teachers Union (el SNTE) and of its political arm The New Alliance Party (PANAL), had been lined up to support the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) and its candidates in the coming election. Several of those candidates were relatives of Gordillo. Monica Arriola, general secretary of PANAL and daughter of Gordillo, claims that PANAL can turn out 3% of the vote, or just enough to decide the election. So Gordillo, so ambitious, so unscrupulous, so opportunistic, now finds herself out in the cold. Or does she.? Given her history, nothing should surprise us. Teachers expressed their anger toward the unions leader Elba Esther Gordillo and the government of President Felipe Caldern for their attacks on teachers rights.

In February, Pea Nietos Attorney General arrested and jailed Elba Esther Gordillo, the head of the Mexican Teachers Union (el SNTE) and for decades one of the most important political figures in Mexican politics.
She was charged along with other union leaders of el SNTE with embezzlement of millions of dollars in union funds in what was widely viewed as punishment for opposing the education reforms. Gordillos arrest sent a powerful message to both official union and independent union leaders and to activists in other social movements that the government was prepared to use all of its power to against any opponent of its political program. Her own union did little to defend her and the public, including teachers union members largely applauded her arrest; she was despised for her arrogance, her corruption, and her conspicuous displays of her wealth and power.
