Of course it is, they suck management's cock by focusing on granting their wishes. That they therefore lack the time to help others, which makes the others look even worse, is a welcome byproduct.

Start organizing a labour union or see if you can get other people to join a relevant one. Most times unionizing is a protected right. It will take a bit of work to start up but as soon as the company gets wind of a union they will do everything they can to avoid having a union because the union can legally demand that they fix things.
