CEDAR RAPIDS — The Hawkeye Area Labor Council AFL-CIO announces the annual Labor Day Picnics in all chapters have been canceled for 2021 due to COVID numbers in the state on the rise. Reports now show that children 0-17 account for 13% of all reported positive cases in Iowa. Executive Director Rick Moyle states “It is sad that we are having such a hard time in Iowa getting COVID under control. The HALC board and our delegates know that we all have a responsibility to do what is right by our communities. We are not willing to contribute to the spread of this evil virus”.
This action was voted on by the Hawkeye Area Labor Council AFL-CIO Executive Board and all its Chapters.
