Letter in Support of Our PA's

Physician Assistants are organizing, please show your support!

Dear HOA Member,

We’re very happy to hear that the Physician’s Assistants employed at Michigan Medicine are organizing their own union with the support of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), and we’re looking forward to having them join our community of union healthcare professionals. They have the right to a professional voice, professional protections, and professional standing that comes with having a union. 

If you know or work with a Physician’s Assistant and are comfortable discussing the HOA with them, we invite you to take a few moments to do so.  Ask them if they have any questions about unionizing and let them know they have your support.

Something you may consider sharing with them is that we all know that our jobs can be stressful, demanding, and overwhelming. But with our union, we’ve created a truly solid and mutually supportive group of people with the power to suggest changes, gain more transparency and accountability from management, and strive to improve the work/life balance that is such a challenge to achieve. We want the same for our PA’s and we stand with them as their organizing effort continues to move forward.

In Unity,

The HOA Board
