A friend of mine has been posted to a Tri-service, but RAF led, establishment. The appointment is in a 2ic slot, which is effectivly head of a dept. The ic has serveral dept and 2ic's The Oic (known as manager) is trying to appoint an RAF officer, who is already at the establishment, into the 2ic slot. This crab is equal rank but much junior to my friend. The justification for this is that the crab has been there for a year and requires experience. My friend is appinted becasue this the right career move. What option(s) does my friend have? Both formal and informal? Why do we allow crabs to breath the same air as normal people?
