Aircon Tempreture in the Office
Could I please get some advice regarding the ideal working tempreture to be set on the aircon thermostat. I sit in the office sweating all day, the heat is unbearable, and whenever I turn the thermostat down, it' s adjusted back up the moment I sit down. I' m trying not to be difficult about it or upset others, but the way I see it, if you' re feeling cool, you' re in a situation where additional clothing will warm you up. I' m unable to get undressed. And I sit suffering in silence. How do I remedy this?

Always has been,a;ways will be a source of office conflict! The basic understanding is that the work environment must be safe and healthy. Unfortunately we all have different views as to what is comfortable. You all need to sit down and try and come to some consensus.
