Modal TriggerPATH employees sleep on the job in the locker room at the rail system’s consolidated shop in Jersey City.

PATH workers are snoozing away huge chunks of their regular shifts, using nap time to rack up big overtime pay, The Post has learned.

“Everybody sleeps,” an insider said. “Guys make big overtime by doing work for 40 minutes or an hour, then billing the Port Authority for four or five. That’s been going on for years.”

The workers’ on-the-job dozing is under investigation by the PA inspector general, an agency spokesman said.

The PA, which operates the rail system, prohibits PATH workers from sleeping on the job — but the rule is routinely ignored, eyewitnesses said.

Christie’s Transit Chief Slams Proposed PATH Cuts, Says Services Should Be Extended

Gov. Christie’s head of transportation said Monday he is against any cutbacks in PATH service between New Jersey and Manhattan, opposing a report commissioned by his boss and Gov. Cuomo that suggested eliminating overnight service to save the Port Authority millions of dollars each year.

“This is not the way I would save money,” Jamie Fox, who once served as deputy executive director of the Port Authority, told a meeting of the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority. “Mass transit is the future of this state.” (Thompson/NBC)
