Workplace question

Company has allowed someone to sell some items in order to buy a piece of equipment that has some use, but not much. We have also been told there isn't money available to buy a much needed replacement machine, that costs more that the other one, but the funds of which could have been put towards the more necessary machine. There used to be a sign with some company blurb saying how they provide equipement to allow work to be done, etc. Bearing all that in mind, do I have a leg to stand on to demand the equipment that is of more help to the staff?

It's difficult to give any sort of answer with such little information. I appreciate you may not feel able to give that.

All I can say is that if the equipment is a matter of Health and Safety then you almost certainly have rights. Otherwise I wouldn't know.

If there is a case to be made for an increase in productivity on the back of the new machine the figures should speak for themselves

Is this person selling assets of the company off or their own items in order to raise money
