In news that is coming out in bits and pieces on Twitter, the workers at the Missoula Independent were locked out and possibly terminated this morning by the Lee Corporation that acted in bad faith with the Missoula Independent Union.
In an emailed statement to the Missoula Independent journalists and sales people they were notified that they were locked out, one journalist even went in to the Missoula Independent offices today without noticing the email and found the doors locked on them.

As this is a still-developing story I will provide updates as I am able to piece them together.
Made my last edit on a cover story at 12:29 a.m.
