Jarrett Jarvis


On March 31, 1989 I began my career with the Florida Department of Corrections (FDOC). During my 24 year tenure I had never received a discipline nor was I ever the focus of any internal investigations.

On November 18, 2013 the FDOC tried to end my dedicated service to the citizens of Florida. I was presented with a pre-settlement agreement by the FDOC with two options;  to choose termination or to choose a demotion to Correction Probation Officer (CPO)  with a substantial cut in pay. 

I immediately contacted Teamster Business Agent William Muse to file a grievance based on discipline with no cause. 

Prior to the mediation hearing on my behalf, Teamsters Business Agent William Muse, Statewide Coordinator Les Cantrell and Attorney Holly Van Horten worked diligently preparing my case.

I would like to thank everyone at Teamsters Local 2011 including those mentioned above for working to get my case settled to my satisfaction. I would also like to thank all the individual union members that called with words of encouragement.

The attempted actions taken against me could happen to anyone employed by FDOC, so it is imperative, that all officers take action to join Teamsters Local 2011 to ensure that they are represented and protected should they ever need help.
