I hate it, but Shane's right, it's time to bring the pain.
No OT, fly the pledge, none of those 1001 little helpful favors that they rely on us to do every day to keep things running smoothly. Screw 'em, if they want to keep playing dirty why should we go above & beyond our job description to help 'em out?
Yep, all a pilot group needs to bring any Frax management group to heel is to do exactly as they're told. Don't jump in to fix those 10-20 little disasters you see developing during the course of any tour, just do what the trip sheet and SOPs tell you to do. If anything goes wrong, wait it out and let the geniuses at the head shed fix it. Most of the folks on the other end of the phone have no idea how many times each tour the average crew dog saves a trip, from either HQ screw-ups or just those unforeseen bumps in the road that pop up every day. Just don't, and let them sort it out for a while. Your value in their eyes will go up, guaranteed.
