Class code 3822 is used for employees that work within a facility that manufactures automobile, bus, truck, or trailer bodies made of die-pressed steel. These portions of a vehicle are stamped and examples include hoods, doors, and fenders. Employees that are included within this class code may do a variety of work including body repair or service work, receiving parts from others, fabricating the chassis or other parts required to produce the bodies, operating machinery that die-presses sheet metal into parts, installation of interior trailer equipment when manufacturing trailer bodies, the manufacture or repair of boat trailers, shipping containers, bus/truck/trailer bodies that are made of die-pressed steel, and the welding of parts into position. Some positions will also be subject to a division in payroll with another classification, so long as the requirements of the Basic Manual are met.

Exclusions to this class code that are similar but should be otherwise classified would be employees that engage in painting of automobile bodies, including sanding, masking, spray painting, and baking. Also excluded would be those operations that manufacture bodies made of materials other than die-pressed steel and non-motorized trailers that are used as residential housing or for construction, medical, or bank structures.
