The World-Herald news department voted Monday to form a union.

The NewsGuild-Communications Workers of America will represent roughly 87 full- and part-time World-Herald journalists. The union will not represent the editorial department, which produces the Opinion section, or news department supervisors, managers and other excluded employees.

Guild organizers say on their website that they “are uniting because we want to preserve and promote Nebraska’s best journalistic outlet — and protect the journalists who make it so.”

The World-Herald is owned by BH Media Group.
