Lockheed Martin And Fort Worth Machinists Union Reach New
Lockheed Martin has reached a new labor agreement
with District Lodge 776 of the International Association of
Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), the largest union at its
Fort Worth (TX), aircraft manufacturing facility. Union members
voted to accept the proposal in a meeting Sunday afternoon.
Back To Work Now
The new contract will allow the union members to
report to work as usual on Monday, April 28, and resume their
production of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, major portions of the
F/A-22 Raptor, and components for Japan's F-2 fighter, among other
"With the new contract in place, we can continue concentrating
on the critical requirements of our customers and our important
mission of producing the world's most advanced, highest quality
combat aircraft at the Fort Worth facility," said Dain M. Hancock,
president of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company.
With about 4,100 members, the IAM is the largest of five unions
at the Fort Worth plant. It represents production and maintenance
employees, firefighters and occupational heath nurses. The new
contract ends a strike that began at midnight on April 13 at the
Fort Worth facility.
Three of the facility's other four unions will negotiate new
contracts in the coming months.
