against corporate killers - fack - is a national campaigning network
which will campaign to stop workers and others being killed in preventable
incidents and will direct bereaved families to sources of legal help
and emotional support.
Relatives of people killed at work formed this national
campaigning group. Fack believes families bereaved as a result of unsafe
and unhealthy workplaces are angry and frustrated. They feel they have
been robbed twice: Once of their loved ones in incidents that should
have been prevented by employers simply obeying the law on workplace
health and safety; and secondly of their right to justice.
The campaign is seeking urgent government action to
halt the complacency about deaths at work and decent laws with will
bring dangerously negligent bosses to justice. fack wants a review of
the way work-related deaths are investigated and the way families are
treated. And it believes workers and safety reps must be given more
rights to protect themselves against exposure to unacceptable risks
to their lives and health.
FACK has received donations from unions and individuals and generous support from Irwin Mitchell.
