Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana Inc. says a long-running relationship with the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis is ending. In a notice to the state, the organization says “unforeseeable business circumstances” involving its janitorial services partnership will lead to the loss of 67 jobs. Around half of the workers, all janitors, will be let go July 1. The remaining employees will be dismissed August 1.
Goodwill says it believes the medical center “abruptly decided” to begin performing tasks with its own staff that had previously been performed by Goodwill employees.

In 2011, Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana recognized the medical center with its Connections Award for providing employment and demonstrating concern for people with employment barriers, which include developmental disabilities.
