DETROIT (AP) — An appeals court says two former union officials must be sentenced again, nearly five years after being convicted of threatening to prolong a strike against General Motors Corp. unless two people were hired.

The court said Thursday that federal Judge Nancy Edmunds, among other things, failed to consider the financial loss suffered by GM when the two people were hired and many UAW members filed grievances.

Donny Douglas and Jay Campbell were sentenced to six months of house arrest. They were charged with threatening to extend a three-month strike at the Pontiac truck factory in 1997 unless a friend and family member were hired for $150,000 jobs.

Campbell's attorney, Harold Gurewitz, says he's disappointed with the decision. A message seeking comment was left with Douglas' attorney.
