OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW) agrees with the ruling on Wednesday, August 1, by Judge Susan Webber Wright of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas to dismiss a lawsuit brought by ABF Freight System, Inc. against several parties, including YRC Inc., New Penn Motor Express, Inc., USF Holland, Inc. and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, claiming that certain amendments to the YRCW companies' collective bargaining agreement should be nullified.

The lawsuit was originally filed in November 2010 and was dismissed by Judge Wright in December of the same year.  On appeal, the case was remanded to the district court for further consideration, resulting in yesterday's ruling.

YRCW is satisfied with the court's decision and believes the court ruled correctly and in accordance with the language of the collective bargaining agreement.

The resolution of this lawsuit is in keeping with YRCW's committed effort to vigorously defend itself against these alleged claims by the plaintiff. YRC Worldwide has and will continue to protect and defend its reputation, as well as its services and brands.
