Dear Dignity Health Arizona Service Area Employees,

We are deeply disturbed and dismayed by yesterday’s reports of union representatives and individuals with Dignity Health and Kaiser badges showing up unannounced at employees’ homes. So much so, that we want to be clear where we stand on this issue: At no time should our employees feel that their privacy, safety or security is being infringed upon.

Strangers showing up at your home unannounced with knowledge about your profession, where you work, and your schedule is intrusive, discomforting and intimidating. This goes against our organization’s core values and culture of humankindness; it goes against what should be every health-care employee’s commitment to privacy and safety; and it goes against our commitment to work/life balance.

This may be how out-of-state union organizers operate, but this is not behavior that we expect or condone in Arizona. Your privacy should be protected and your safety is our top concern. Know that you have every right to call authorities if you feel that you are being harassed or trespassed.

There is bound to be a lot of conversation about yesterday’s events. Should you have questions and concerns, please talk to your supervisor or call on your leadership or human resources teams.

Sincerely,

Linda Hunt
President and CEO
