Cindy Estrada, Vice President, UAW, Alisa Priddle, The Detroit News, Joe Szczesny, The Oakland Press. Topic: UAW.

Most would say the soundtrack of U.S. labor union movement is closer to the edgy guitar of Woody Guthrie than the smooth sounds of Burt Bacharach. But it’s a new day at beleaguered unions like the United Auto Workers as they, like the Bacharach song says, “reach out” to not only stay relevant but rebuild a membership that has been collapsing. And that “reaching out” for the UAW is the job of union Vice President Cindy Estrada who joins John McElroy this week on Autoline. Ms. Estrada talks to John and panelists Alisa Priddle of the Detroit News & Joe Szczesny of the Oakland Press about her rise through the UAW and her plans to replenish those dwindling membership ranks.
