YRC Worldwide Inc. released a Securities and Exchange Commission proxy statement Wednesday inviting shareholders to its annual meeting.

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.

The second proposal, a nonbinding vote to approve the compensation packages for the company’s core executive leadership, revealed how much each executive made in 2011 and 2012.

Here’s the total amount of salary, stock awards, incentives and bonuses awarded to YRC executives:

Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

As the country honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we remember his often ignored contributions to the labor movement. Dr. King understood the ties between labor rights and civil rights. He gave his life while supporting striking sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee. He spoke firmly against right-to-work laws, saying that “in our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as ‘right to work.’ It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.”
