Do Intermittent RNs at VA get Holiday Pay?

I am curious if intermittent (0.1 fte) nurses at the VA get holiday pay if they work on a holiday? I realize they probably don't get the holiday pay like full time nurses get whether they work or not, but if an intermittent nurse works on one of the 10 Federal VA holidays (i.e. Columbus Day), do they get paid holiday pay rates (double time)?

Anything below a 1.0 FTE have to work on the holiday to get holiday pay.

Yes, as an intermittent RN, you must work the holiday to get holiday pay and benefits.

OK, that's for Title 38s, bit not for Title 5s, correct RN Steve?
