As an update to the safety message that was sent to all employees two weeks ago, we have reason to believe that an out-of-state union is targeting Dignity Health Arizona employees and trying to obtain their personal and employment information. We also believe an out-of-state union organization is actively seeking an “electronic signature,” which an employee can unintentionally give by simply clicking on an email or website. Collection of such signatures can quickly result in a union election and disrupt the long-standing direct relationships the Dignity Health Arizona team has enjoyed.

Those direct relationships have built the rich culture and excellence for which all our hospitals and health-care centers are known. While we respect each employee’s right to choose representation, we prefer to maintain a direct relationship with you. We believe it’s core to our team and culture. Please do not provide a signature, click on a website, or submit information without a thorough understanding of what is involved. In addition, please know that we would never share your information as we view it as a safety and privacy violation.

If you have any questions, please talk to your leader or let us know.

Sincerely,

Linda Hunt
