You know the technique (it's not a workaround because it is the intended 
way hidden pins work). Unhide the pin and wire to it. Now, why you are not 
able to wire to it is another story. Perhaps the tip of the pin is 
off-grid? What else is in the net, and is this a ports and sheet-entry 
connections type of schematic?

If you wire to the pin instead of hiding it, no global net is created. 
However, if you use a power object for +38V, this will create a global 
power net.
