50 YEARS
Gold Card recipients included:

The 50-year gold card recipients, who have never missed a dues payment, are exempt from paying further dues thanks to the International Union.

Jamison also received the Virgil Daly Award, named after Local 110’s former secretary-treasurer, who went out of his way to help anyone who needed it before the Local had a lot of resources, at times even taking money from his own pocket to pay members’ dues.
