Can I import unique symbology labels from the Attribute Table

We have layer file setup that uses Unique values to create the Symbology. We currently edit the Label of each Symbol to include an Area amount in the legend next to each symbol. This layer changes from time to time though and the labels need to be manually edited to reflect the new Area totals.

Is there a way to import labels based on the unique values used to categorise the symbols (using Python maybe?). 

If this is possible, then when the total area changes for a given value, we could rerun a script that would calculate the total area for each value, concatenate the value and area text before importing the text as the new label for the corresponding value in the Symbology. The main reason for this is that we don't want to have to redo the "Add All Values" and lose the customised colour schemes setup. William kalande
