If This Is True, Is It Fair?

For a break from convention news, pasted below is a quote from St. Louis station FOX2 made on July 6. Is this just inflammatory language meant to create news, or are the former employees of KFUO-FM being treated unfairly?

ST. LOUIS, MO ( - After 62 years, St. Louis' only classical music radio station has gone off the air. KFOU FM, also known as Classic 99, was sold by the Lutheran Church to a contemporary Christian music station. The Lutheran Church forced all Classic 99 employees to sign an agreement that is at the least questionable under Missouri and federal labor law. It states that if employees want six months severance pay they can not work for anyone, at any job, anywhere, for those 6 months.
