The duo both agreed terms before the weekend deadline.
McLuckie's future has been in doubt for weeks and he thought about calling quits on his football career after changing jobs.
Unable to commit to every game, McLuckie started training with the club again earlier this month and this afternoon, agreed a deal.
Hassan, who previously worked with Reds assistant Tony Elliott at Whitby Town, impressed boss Darren Edmondson during pre-season, before trying his luck with npower Championship new boys Huddersfield Town.
Hassan was released by Hartlepool United, and the 19-year-old could play a big role, according to Edmondson, who said: “To have Phil back is a big boost for the club.
“He’s a quality player and will play a role for us this year when he’s available.
“It is a pay-as-you-play deal, the same as Callum’s, but means we have cover across the park.
“It was important that we brought extra bodies in, especially with some tough games in the coming weeks.”
Workington failed to agree personal terms with veteran Wayne Curtis, while Blackburn Rovers product, and former Republic of Ireland under-21 international Josh O’Keefe also rejected an offer.
