Jack basically tries to publicly usurp Ralph's role as chief. Jack accuses Ralph of not being a "real" chief. He accuses Ralph of being weak, liking Piggy and making the boys do boring things. He chastises Ralph for fearing the beast and not getting meat. Jack then asks for a re-vote. The boys don't openly vote Ralph out. Jack goes into tantrum mode and storms off. Most of the boys join him later.
