I am a SGT currently in the Army reserve. My reserve center is shared between my company detachment (90 personnel) and a small group of CID personnel (approximately 20 persons). A chief warrant officer has been designated facility manager due to his AGR status. As such, he has taken it upon himself to restrict my company from utilizing the male latrine (it is on the second floor of the building, and he dislikes our company being on the floor for any reason). This leaves our 90 soldiers with only the female latrine and a single toilet unisex latrine. As much as I disagree with this leadership style, it hit a new low this morning.

My unit was in the middle of a urinalysis when the CID group reported for duty. The warrant officer immediately restricted use of the male latrine. This left us with our much larger group, executing a mission essential task, to utilizing a single toilet latrine all because of a preference.

I have always viewed this as an abuse of power/position. This morning I have been trying to find doctrine or guidance on the subject, but have been unable to find anything. Is there a course of action I can take to correct this issue for my soldiers?

Yea. Screw that guy on the power trip. He may be the building facility manager, but there is someone above him that is in charge of the entire compound. Turn and burn.

That is nicer than I would do... But then again, I take a dim view of NON team players in our forces. I still remember the first blanket party I ever participated in, because dude refused to shower. Enough was enough...

Your top leadership should get involved. Whose building is it? Who pays for the upkeep? What is the center called?

Due to the ongoing nature, I was leaning towards an IG complaint, but wanted to exhaust all other options prior to initiating that.
