Union President Caught Sleeping on the Job … Literally

Mark Rosenthal, President of the Local 983 union of District Council 37, has a lot to say about hard work.  In a recent letter to his union brothers and sisters, Rosenthal laments about how “we are working that much harder because we have fewer workers”.  He adds that everything in the union’s current contract was “earned through years of hard work”.

Seems the only thing Rosenthal is hitting hard these days is the counting of sheep.

According to a damning report from the New York Post, Rosenthal, who earns $156,000 annually, frequently comes to work at 2 p.m., eats lunch, and then immediately assumes this position…

Surely this man is earning his salary, and has a right to collect union dues to help his brothers and sisters achieve ‘economic justice’.

Via the New York Post:

Union fat cat Mark Rosenthal spends more time sleeping at his desk than organizing labor, a series of damning photos reveals.

The 400-pound president of Local 983 of District Council 37 — the city’s largest blue-collar municipal-workers union — often downs a huge meal, then drops into dreamland in the early afternoon, members of the union’s executive board told The Post.

“He eats lunch when he arrives at work at 2 p.m. Then, like clockwork, he goes to sleep with a cup of soda on the table and the straw in it,” said Marvin Robbins, a union vice president.

“Then he wakes up, looks at his watch and says, ‘I have to get out before the traffic gets bad.’ He’s usually out by 4 p.m. after being at the office two hours.”

During his campaign in the ’90s, Rosenthal ran on a platform which promised to rid the union of corruption.  A union watchdog director at the time referred to him as “a rank-and-file reformer” who “represents hope”.

Now he is reforming the 8 hour work day … into a two-hour nap time.

Check out more pictures of the union President in various states of rest, at the New York Post.

    we need more posts of photos like this to show the idiocy of those in power that want to control others, while living far better, working less and enjoying more.
