One of the people interviewed is Elba Esther Gordillo, the powerful and influential leader of the National Union of Education Workers, known by the acronym SNTE. Gordillo, who has led the union since 1989, is considered the main obstacle to a professional evaluation of teachers and is often criticized for using the union for political leverage.

More than 20,000 of the state's 25,000 teachers are on strike, demanding an end to the Alliance for Quality Education (ACE) signed in May by President Felipe Calderon and Elba Esther Gordillo, "permanent president" of the National Union of Education Workers (SNTE).
...
Given the high levels of unemployment in Mexico and the highly politicized nature of evaluations, teachers are concerned about the stability of their positions, especially those who oppose the virtual dictatorship exercised by Gordillo over the 1.3 million member union. Gordillo is closely allied with Calderon and was probably responsible for a good deal of the electoral fraud that brought the current president to power.
...
Teachers in Morelos have taken the lead in challenging the ACE, but many teachers around the country are opposed to the plan and to Gordillo's increasingly corrupt and problematic control of the union. On Tuesday, thousands of teachers from six states participated in marches, meetings and building occupations in opposition to Gordillo, the ACE and last year's privatization of much of the Social Security Institute for State Workers (ISSSTE).

With the economic crisis of the 1990s, two of the country's most ambitious labor leaders - Francisco Hernández Juárez 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 Mexico's labor federations. First, she signed a pact with President Caderón 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 Calderón.
...
Calderón' alliance with Gordillo threatens to weaken the Mexican Teachers Union by bringing it closer to the conservative National Action Party, while both Calderón and Gordillo would like to crush the militant opposition teachers of the National Coordinating Committee.
...
Indeed, following Calderón's 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).

After taking office, Calderón formed an alliance with Elba Esther Gordillo of the Mexican Teachers Union (el SNTE) who had supported him during his campaign.
...
Calderón and Gordillo created the Alliance for Quality Education (ACE).
...
Throughout the last year the National Coordinating Committee has led teachers in strikes, marches, and protest demonstrations against Calderón, against Gordillo, and against ACE.
...
Gordillo has used her powerful bureaucratic machine and all sorts of shenanigans against the opposition, while the Calderón government has frequently responded to the teachers demonstrations with violent repression.
...
The campaign clearly aims to unite the country's teachers, wrest power from Elba Esther Gordillo, who controls the Mexican Teachers Union (el SNTE), and, finally, to drive Calderón from power. (24) Some see a popular movement for the impeachment of the president as the first step in the convocation of a new Constituent Assembly to create a new more democratic, more nationalist, and-some would say-socialist Mexican government. (25) The Mexican workers movement and its allied social movements-farmers, environmentalists, and indigenous peoples-will after the dark days of 2009 first have to rebuild the strength and confidence of the movement from the grassroots before they can succeed in accomplishing these broader goals.

Sección 59 was established by the priísta SNTE leader, Elba Ester Gordillo, as a rival local to Sección 22 in Oaxaca, and its members were promptly sent back to work as a means of breaking the strike.
