That may not be well-received from a staff if they are already passive aggressive. It may help if you can give a few examples but some possible tactics could be asking neutrally / innocently ‘What do you mean by that?’ (Pretending like you don’t understand it as a passive-aggressive dog, and therefore not keeping silent about it) or - if they make these types of comments in front of others, then I think you can pull them aside after and ask that if they have feedback, you’d prefer to discuss it one-on-one so that everyone has a fair opportunity to discuss and address it. Again, your tone will be key in having valid support if they don’t get it and try to use it against you.

Have a meeting with them, where you come in with documented instances about how their behavior is negatively affecting you so you can articulate why they need to change. I've found that this approach has worked for me in the past.
