Cagliari, the minority in the municipality proposes an alias career for trans employees

Motion tabled by the minority to obtain an alias career for all municipal employees

In Cagliari’s Municipality, trans staff will soon be able to be identified by the gender name they choose and not by their personal name. The motion for this change was tabled by the opposition in the City Council of the Centre-left, with Giulia Andreozzi, councillor of the Progressisti group, as first signatory.

Here is what councillor Giulia Andreozzi herself wrote about it on her Facebook page.

‹‹ How difficult can it be for a trans+ person to turn up for work knowing that they will be called by a name other than the one they chose? How difficult can it be for these people to be forced on a daily basis to conceal their perceived identity or to undergo the humiliation of being called by a name other than the one they have chosen, or to see a name on their badge?››

But what does the alias career consist of?

It is a solution used for transgender students who do not recognise themselves in their birth gender, but as reported by “Not everyone can access this tool – which only applies within the school – in fact, it refers only to those people who are going through a gender change (transition). There is no single method of access: each institution has its own method, since it is an internal service and limited only to that school or university“.

Continuing on the Facebook profile of councillor Giulia Andreozzi: ”For many trans+ people, the social stigma and the serious offences and discrimination of which they are daily victims are an obstacle to finding employment, especially in those situations where the transition process (still excessively rigid and bureaucratic in our country) has not been completed and there is a discrepancy between the chosen gender identity and personal data. Allowing trans+ people to be identified, including in the workplace, by their chosen gender identity rather than by their birth certificate would be fundamental to guaranteeing their right to privacy and personal dignity and recognising their fundamental and inviolable right to personal identity. The workplace would thus be considered safe and welcoming for trans+ people“.
