PTF's make more per hour to offset the holiday pay. Essentially, it's built into your regular wage rate.

If you think that's not right, wait until you realize your supervisor makes more money than you and does far less work.

Realize they will fight, PTF's are career employees and are expected to stick it out. PSE's needed a perk s an incentive not to quit

Apparently the original post was deleted.

PSE's get holidays off? Just passed my year. I think the only holidays I had off were Christmas (and everyone had that off) and... President's day? (only got that one off because other PSE had quit, it was her last week and boss was ticked off at her so made her work instead of me.) Boss talked to me today and basically had nobody that could work Saturday the 4th because nobody else (PSE-wise) knows how to do what I can - most senior PSE under me hasn't even reached his 60 yet - so I just told them I'd do it. Had basically already assumed I was working, and need the bucks, so no biggie, but holidays off usually don't happen for me as a PSE, so not sure where OP is getting that.

OP means you get those days paid, not necessarily that you have them off. If you work, you get paid twice.

a PTF is just a glorified PSE anyway...the 5% TSP pay match would instantly make up for those 'holidays' also, at least on the previous contract, PSE's didn't get Sunday Premium pay, which PTF's do...the start towards the pension PTFs also get is a perk...

also by making like $1 more per hour as a PTF then an FTR same level and working more than 2000 hours that year as a PTF, for the 10 holidays and how they factor overtime, as a PTF I got an extra $5 an hour on Sundays, then by Thursday id be over 40 and hit OT on Thu/Fri...

im FTR now and work way more hours than I did as a PSE or PTF

Given the choice between PTF and PSE, it's a no-brainer.
