Scranton, Pa., and its police, fire and public works unions have reached a settlement over Mayor Chris Doherty's decision to cut city employees' pay to minimum wage for one pay period earlier this month.

Under the agreement, which was reached Saturday, the city will pay the employees in full for the withheld wages, along with 6 percent interest, by Aug. 17.

The unions agreed to drop a petition asking Judge Michael Barrasse to find Doherty in contempt for defying a court order that barred the city from cutting wages to $7.25 an hour.
