Workflow not triggered on push from another workflow, even using PAT

I have an action as follows:

on:
  push:
    branches:
      - master
jobs:
  bump-version-and-deploy:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@master
        # Ensure full history is gotten.
        with:
          fetch-depth: 0
          persist-credentials: false
      - name: Bump version and push tag
        uses: mathieudutour/github-tag-action@v5.5
        with:
          github_token: ${{ secrets.BUMP_VERSION }}
          default_bump: false

Here, BUMP_VERSION is a personal access token, so the action of pushing the tag should trigger another workflow with the on: push key. However, this other action is not triggering at all. The push workflow is running fine, and the tag is created and pushed etc. I also have the persist-credentials: false line that is necessary, and have also tried actions/checkout@v1 to no avail.

Can any tell what is going on? The repo in question is GitHub - edges-collab/edges-io: Module for reading EDGES data and working with EDGES databases

Thank you!
