I have been employed at my workplace for 4 years. During those 4 years, I have moved twice. Originally, I started in an office without windows. Then, I was moved to an office with windows. My overall well-being was much improved in the office with windows. However, when our VP decided to move into the same building and bring her closest work friends with her, we were forced to move yet again. She wanted my office - with windows - to become the "conference room." According to people here long before me, it is not likely that it will actually be used for a conference room (based on their experience).
So I am back in the office without windows and in the same room as 5 other people. It is a small office. Every conversation and phone call is amplified, the heating/cooling is not consistent, the florescent lighting and yellow walls cause headaches. However, our other colleagues - of the same rank and position - were moved upstairs into a spacious, newly carpeted office with 6 windows and larger desks. They do not even have to turn on the lights; instead, they can use the pleasant natural lighting. Despite being in the same office as each other, they are so far apart from one another that conversations/phone calls are not distracting.
There is a night and day difference between the working conditions of the two rooms. I always do as I am told without complaining; however, I feel anxious and depressed since the move. My colleague has said he feels the same, but he is now apathetic to the move and does not feel it is worth challenging.
How can I request fair working conditions in a respectful way for everyone? Every time I start to say something, I back off, get scared, or start tearing up as part of my anxiety.
