SHINNSTON, W.Va. (AP) — The Utility Workers Union of America says FirstEnergy has agreed to pay union members at the Harrison Power Station more than $1 million to settle unfair labor practice charges.

The union announced the settlement Wednesday in a news release.

Under the settlement, union workers also will receive an immediate 6 percent pay increase. The company also will reinstate or improve benefits, including incentive bonuses, that it had cut or eliminated at the Shinnston plant.

A complaint issued in January by the National Labor Relations Board charged the company with illegally cutting workers' pay and benefits in 2012.

The union represents 150 employees at the Harrison Power Station.
