After having used GatherBy, for each of the resulting list elements you 
want to have the first element of the first column and the sum of the 
second column:

In[10]:= list1 = {{1,a},{2,b},{1,c},{2,d},{2,e},{3,f}};
In[11]:= {#[[1,1]], Total[#[[All,2]]]}& /@ GatherBy[list1, First]
Out[11]= {{1,a+c},{2,b+d+e},{3,f}}
