The Guardian (p16) carries an obituary of trade unionist Barrie Sherman - who died last Thursday aged 59 - written by Geoffrey Goodman. Sherman's father, now Sir Louis Sherman, was chairman of the Housing Corporation in the 1970s and mayor of Hackney. His wife, Sally, followed him as mayor.

Sherman was recruited to the Association of Scientific, Technical and Managerial Staffs (ASTMS) shortly after graduating, and in the 1980s became known for his work in television. He made 50 training films dealing with emerging work problems. At the time of his death, Goodman was working with him on a script for a new series about the revolution in working habits and culture. A book, 'A Blank Sheet of Paper', is to be published next spring.
