Lionel Murray, Baron Murray of Epping Forest 
      British trade unionist (b. Aug. 2, 1922, Hadley, Shropshire, Eng.—d. May 20, 2004, London, Eng.), was the enormously powerful assistant general secretary (1969–73) and general secretary (1973–84) of the Trades Union Congress (TUC). During his tenure as TUC leader, he enjoyed a close relationship with the Labour government of Prime Minister Harold Wilson, but after 1979 Murray was powerless to curb the growing public antagonism toward the TUC and the antiunion policies of Tory Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. He was made a life peer in 1985.
