FORT WORTH — Two unions have reached new deals with Lockheed Martin.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the Office and Professional Employees International Union represent 500 workers at the Fort Worth plant of the aeronautics giant.

About 3,600 workers with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local 776 remain on strike. They walked out last month instead of approving what they called one of the worst contract offers they had ever seen.

The machinists are upset over pension plans, health costs and new hires.

Lockheed Martin has continued production during the strike, although at a slower pace.
