    DECATUR - Hundreds of workers hope to save their local union. Teamsters Local #279 is in danger of shutting down. Union leadership wants to dissolve the branch, dividing its 600 members among Local #26 in Champaign and Local #916 in Springfield. The trustee in charge blames it on money issues. In a letter to members, he states: Limited financial resources prevents the local from organizing new members or maintaining a staff to adequately serve the current membership. Some members feel blindsided and don't won't to have to drives miles away for a union meeting.

    We were in danger of this with our local. ken Wood of Local 79 wanted to take our Bradenton and Sarasota members and hand us here on the east coast to Local 769...but so far so good.
