Police[edit]

I don't have a citation, but I remember a job action by police in New York State (maybe Nassau County) around 1970 in which they started strictly enforcing speed limits. Anyone have a citation? - Jmabel | Talk 04:20, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

US military term[edit]

Some months ago, I heard a caller to the Ed Schulz Show use the phrase "white mutiny", where a military unit does much the same thing as "work-to-rule". Can anyone provide a cite to verify that usage? -- llywrch 19:58, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Wiki Administrators[edit]

Some Wiki administrators had been observed to overstretch the implementation of their rules, in order to circumvent Wiki's major principles. --78.51.18.216 (talk) 11:06, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Wrong definition.[edit]

This article's own sources say that a work-to-rule is when workers deliberately obey rules to the letter to cause a slowdown. The article defines "work-to-rule" as not going above and beyond the requirements. Somebody please fix it, as I assume that any edit I make will get reverted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.166.255.246 (talk) 21:38, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
