OMAHA — The Omaha World-Herald's reporters and editors are considering forming a union at the newspaper owned by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway.

About three-quarters of the 95 journalists at the newspaper have said they want to be represented by the NewsGuild-Communications Workers of America union. The newsroom will likely vote on the move in the next 20 to 40 days.

A World-Herald spokeswoman declined to comment Thursday.

The unionization effort was inspired partly by Berkshire Hathaway's decision earlier this year to hire Davenport, Iowa-based Lee Enterprises to manage its newspapers.

Reporter Todd Cooper says he thinks it's important that the people who produce the newspaper locally have a say in its direction.
