ALL of our Locations are Open and will remain open

The nineteen non-supervisory employees at our Festus retail location, represented by UFCW 655, rejected MERS Goodwill Industries' latest contract offering.   This vote to reject the contract also simultaneously authorized their ability to strike.  MERS Goodwill Industries does not know what actions UFCW 655 and the employees will choose to take regarding striking, but we will continue to respect their rights, and we will remain open for our customer's shopping enjoyment.

MERS Goodwill Industries will continue to treat ALL of our employees respectfully and keep this organization a strong pillar within the community.  We are proud of what we do for the community and our employees, including offering a full range of benefits to employees.  Our wage and benefits package for full-time entry-level positions range from $16.18 - $23.63 on DAY 1 of employment with a pay increase after completing training (30 – 90 days).

We appreciate our customers and donors and will continue to do our best work to support the community.
