Brendan Barber, who gets a knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours, won respect from both sides of industry and all shades of government during his time as leader of the TUC.

He spent almost a decade as general secretary before leaving at the end of last year, although he held several jobs over 37 years at the union organisation.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
