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

The 400 plus pound president of Local 983 of District Council 37…the city’s largest blue-collar municipal-workers union…often downs a huge meal of cheeseburgers, shakes, onion rings, and pie, then drops into dreamland in the early afternoon, members of the union’s executive board told SatireWorld.

“He eats lunch when he arrives at work at 2 p.m. Then, like clockwork, he goes to sleep with a 48oz cup of soda on the table and the straw in it,” said Mel Schlitz, a union representative.

“Then he wakes up, looks at his watch and says, ‘Yikes! 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.”

Rosenthal is a former Parks Department employee who rose to power campaigning to rid the union of corruption in the late 1990s.

Rosenthal, who earns $156,000 annually plus substanial benefits, yesterday denied being a free spender and insisted he works 12-to-14-hour days, claiming just thinking about work is work and he rarely puts in for overtime anymore.

“Look, I just close my eyes and listen…That’s working!”
