We are aware that there has been recent speculation in the market concerning whether or not Royal Mail will be introducing a pricing differential between National Price Plan 1 and National Price Plan 2 next April as we recently received a letter from one customer asking us to confirm what our position is.
Although the final details of the Access tariff changes have not yet been finalised, we have confirmed to that customer that we have made a decision in principle to introduce a price difference between National Price Plan 1 and National Price Plan 2 / the Zonal Price Plan from next April.
The final price difference has not yet been finally decided. Of course, we will contact you as soon as possible after the Tariff 2014 details have been published in January to work with you on assessing the most suitable price plan for your company.
We aim to pubish our new Access tariff on the 7th January 2014.

The proposed agreement will now be considered by the executive of the union before being balloted on by the union's membership.
Royal Mail and the CWU have agreed that the union's ballot for industrial action remains valid. However, the CWU has confirmed that there will be no disruption through industrial action during the ratification process of the proposed agreement, including the whole of the Christmas trading period.
An announcement on the content of the proposed agreement will be made when it is ratified by the union's executive committee. The proposed agreement is also subject to approval by the Royal Mail plc Board.

These terms are detailed in the form of a new Access letters contract and a separate parcels contract which are available to view here.
