Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On October 2, 2020, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of YRC Worldwide Inc. (the “Company”), approved a form of retention agreement to be entered into with certain employees from time to time as determined by the Company’s Compensation Committee.  At this time, no retention agreements under this form have been executed with any employee.  The retention agreements are intended to encourage the employees’ continued service to the Company during the implementation of the Company’s business strategy.  

The retention agreements may provide for an upfront payment that is subject to repayment if specified vesting conditions are not satisfied, for a future payment that will be made if specified employment conditions are satisfied, or a combination of the two.  The retention agreements provide that no payment will be made if it would violate the Company’s existing credit agreements.

The foregoing description of the retention agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the form of retention agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1, which is incorporated herein by reference.
