Class code 2670 is used for employees that work in the glove manufacturing industry, including leather and textile gloves or mittens. General job duties may include the cutting of leather or other necessary fabrics, the stitching of parts together by hand or machinery, the creation and attachment of linings for the gloves, as well as patterning functions as needed.

Gloves, as included in this classification, would be the kind worn on the hands for warmth or for fashion reasons but would also include any gloves used for athletic purposes, such as boxing, baseball, golf, or hockey gloves. However, manufacturers of gloves made with materials not leather or textile related, such as rubber latex or knit gloves would be excluded.
