Fair use quote
Investigators caught railroad worker Jacqueline Gardner, signal inspector Robert Kreuzer and his supervisor William Bagnasco away from their jobs on multiple occasions in 2018 while they were still collecting OT, according to an IG report.

Backshop,

If you read the article the discipline has already been doled out and it appears to be a closed case between the LIRR agreement employees and MTA counsel.

True, but let's not give the Times as gospel on any topic, either.

The Post,Daily News,and Newsday,have "Crusades" against the MTA about "wasted money",to drive up their
readership numbers,tend to use a grain of salt on those stories due to details that get edited out and wind up in the waste can.
This happens in the online "national" editions they "throw" out ,NOT WORTH SLOGGING THRU ALL THAT BLOODY FORCED ADWARE.
