Speak to HR. By LAW your employer is REQUIRED in ANY state to provide you with a quiet/private place that is not a bathroom in which to pump. They are also REQUIRED to allow you a 15-20 minute break every 2-3 hours to pump(or reasonable break time- what I listed is what ie recommended for optimal supply and comfort). Print this out and take it in when you talk to them: http://www.usbreastfeeding.org/Workplace/WorkplaceSupport/WorkplaceSupportinHealthCareReform/tabid/175/Default.aspx
This law took effect immediately. There is a section you can look at the exact text, print off various things, etc.
