Cindy Estrada, 41
Vice President, UAW
Why did you want to work in the auto industry? I was around a lot of union guys at my father's bar in Detroit. They always encouraged me.
First automotive job: I worked on the UAW drive to organize the now-defunct Mexican Industries parts operations in Detroit in 1995.
Proudest professional achievement: Helping workers get a seat at the table in determining their futures.
Current challenge at work: Organizing a large number of parts suppliers in the American South that operate in an unfair labor environment.
What you do to relax: Play with my children.
