Trucking – Parcels or Packages – Home Delivery From Retail Stores & Drivers

Note:

Includes miscellaneous employees such as terminal employees and garage employees.

Description

Code 7197 applies to employers engaged in delivering parcels or packages for retail stores to residences of the retail store customers.  Parcels and packages may vary in size.  This classification does not apply to any drivers that are directly employed by the retail store.  This classification also applies to outside trucking firms engaged in providing delivery service for retail stores.

Tunneling – All Operations to Completion

Note:

Description

Code 6251 applies to specialist contractors who perform tunnel construction.  This classification applies to all operations including lining.  It does not include subway construction.  The operations include earth, rock, and water removal by mechanical equipment, explosives, and pumps and drains piped to the outside of the bore which will vary in size depending upon the ultimate use of the tunnel.  Shaped steel I-beams are placed as the bore progresses, to which horizontal beams or solid bar stock are welded or bolted for support.  Shielding the bore, between the I-beams, requires bolting wood bulkheads or welding steel plates to the beams followed by filling gaps between the face of the bore and shielding with sand or concrete grout.  The tunnel will then be lined with concrete, steel or tile, if required, and lighting, ventilation, and drains installed.

This classification also applies to employers engaged in pneumatic tunneling operations which includes lining, all employees working under air pressure, and all others working in the tunnel or in work on the apparatus connected therewith.  Steel caissons, equipped with a shield and air locks for workers and material, are sunk to the required depth at the portals (also equipped with locks) at each end of the tunnel to be constructed.  The work proceeds to the center (until breakthrough) by pushing the shield (a long steel tube) through the inside of the caisson. Material is hauled back through the caisson and lifted to the surface for removal.  As the shield moves forward, a steel lining is constructed in the tunnel bore. Concrete is then forced between the lining and the walls of the hole. At breakthrough, the portals are opened to the ground connections.

  • Welding - under pressure - tunneling - pneumatic

Type Foundry

Note:

Description

Code 3336 applies to employers engaged in operating a type foundry where type founders design and produce metal type for hand composition.  Raw materials such as pig lead or brass is received from others which is melted and poured into small pigs to be used in casting machines.  The molten metal is forced into the type die where it is solidified by a water cooling system around the die itself and is automatically trimmed and ejected from the machine.  This classification contemplates the machining and engraving of the dies utilized in the casting operations as well as sorting, inspecting and packaging the type.

This classification also applies to manufacturing white metal jewelry castings or other ornaments, either by hand pouring molten metal into molds, or by using centrifugal casting machines.  After casting, the pieces are trimmed to remove rough edges (known as gates or sprues) and are tumbled in sawdust or buckshot to clean them.  There is no “finishing” of jewelry castings by soldering pins, clasps or earring backs in place or by hand tooling or drilling.  However, other types of castings are sometimes plated or lacquered.

This classification also applies to manufacturing metal castings by the “lost wax” process.  The process typically begins by pouring liquid wax into molds.  The wax is cooled and the resultant wax cast is removed from the original mold.  The wax cast is then dipped into and coated with a material such as silicone silicate.  After drying, the coated wax article is placed into an oven, causing the wax to melt and run out.  Molten metal is then poured into the remaining mold to form the metal casting.  The metal casting is machined as necessary.
