ITEM 8.01 - OTHER EVENTS

On June 27, 2013, Arkansas Best Corporation (Nasdaq: ABFS) issued a press release announcing that its ABF Freight System, Inc., ("ABF") employees represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters ("IBT"), had ratified ABF's national collective bargaining agreement for the next five years.

A majority of the supplements to the ABF National Master Freight Agreement also passed. The remaining supplemental agreements will require additional action relating to various local work rules and other technical items, before the entire contract becomes effective.

Because of the additional action needed for the remaining supplemental agreements, ABF and the IBT have agreed to an extension of ABF's current labor contract through July 31, 2013.

A copy of the press release is furnished as an exhibit to this Report on Form 8-K.
