The meeting, which will be April 30 at the less-than-truckload carrier's (Nasdaq: YRCW) headquarters in Overland Park, will discuss corporate matters and invite shareholders to vote on the company's directors, executive compensation and the appointment of accounting firm KPMG LLP as the company’s independent registered public accounting firm in 2013, the release said. The company recommends approval of KPMG.
The seven current members of the company’s board who were not appointed by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters as part of restructuring are running to retain the position through 2014. The company recommends its shareholders approve all seven.
