Families Against Corporate Killers (fack) is a group of families who have been bereaved by work. Their loved ones were not killed in one terrible disaster but in ones and twos, day by day, in workplaces across the country, almost unnoticed, almost unremarked, except their families. The families themselves have not been treated as victims of crime, received little support, respect or acknowledgement. They have had no sense of justice or accountability.
Three founder members of FACK will speak of their own experiences of their loss, their further victimisation by the criminal justice system, and of possible ways forward for appropriate legal responses to corporate killers.
Linzi Herbertson’s husband Andrew was killed when he fell from a scaffold platform while dismantling a printing press in Oldham in January 1998. Samuel, son of Dawn and Paul Adams, was only 6 years old when he was killed at the then-newly opened Trafford Shopping Centre in Manchester in October 1998
fack was launched in July 2006 with the support of the Hazards Campaign. A leaflet and further information is available at www.fack.org.uk
