This is the original problem from an employee...
I love my job and where I work, however, the morale in my department is terrible. There are a few members of my department who have set themselves up as overseers of the department. They tell people who are in equal positions how to do their jobs. They bully the boss and have outright tried to have him fired a number of times and he is now in the position of having to placate them. (He's made mistakes in the past and they still bring it up as if it happened yesterday.) If someone other than themselves has an idea to enact improvements, they flat-out dismiss the idea without having the courtesy to hear their co-workers out, yet they make changes as they see fit, sometimes without telling those of us who need to know! Half my department has no sick time or vacation time left. They've all taken the Team-Work obviously didn't work. Any ideas out there on how to get this department working better together?

You likely need to have a mediator come in and create a new environment. This one is very complicated and there is not likely a quick fix. A new supervisor may be the only way out of this one. Someone who can come in and lay down a new law.

I think the supervisor has to step-up or get released from his duty because it clearly that he cant control the team and most importantly inspire them to work hard...the position of a supervisor comes with some form of authority that ordinary employees don't have so surely he can get help from HR if people don't listen to him/her
