Anger As Royal Mail Tells Suppliers To Cut Bills By 20Pc

Recommended Posts

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/supportservices/8116110/Anger-as-Royal-Mail-tells-suppliers-to-cut-bills-by-20pc.html

It is understood that Royal Mail's top 150 suppliers were summoned to a meeting in central London 10 days ago at which they were told to seek 20pc cuts in their costs and reach an agreement on a new contract within 30 days.

The move has echoes of the demands by Serco, the support services group, which asked suppliers for a 2.5pc rebate before withdrawing it last week amid a backlash.

Stephen Alambritis, chief spokesman for the FSB, said: "It's a sad day when a great British institution like Royal Mail reverts to this. We would urge Vince Cable and ministers to get on the phone and say: 'You can't do this.' "

I wonder how long before we see headlines about this with big govt departments demanding savings from suppliers.

Yes it's a very sad day that the Royal Mail is seeking value for money rather than paying over the odds with the blank chequebook of the taxpayer. Clearly we should just keep paying.

Top Tip to suppliers printing advertising leaflets to be delivered under Royal Mail direct marketing scheme - ask them if they'll accept PDFs, and while they're at it ask if they'll let you delivery it by email.

Ironic isn't it that people like Alambritis (annoying sh1t) are the first to whinge when public sector cuts start feeding through to his members and also the first to complain about public service waste and taxation when it's other people who face cuts.

To be fair the Royal Mail has been screwed over by its board of directors. Wasn't one of them also at DHL/TNT and negotiated a contract where the Royal Mail effectively lost money for every mail delivery made on their behalf.

Chinese wall my ****, it was plain corruption.

The mans name was Adam Crozier.

As well as being the MD... *in charge* of Royal Mail, he was also on the board of directors for TNT who PAID HIM MORE.

He deliberately bankrupted Royal Mail, and is the biggest single reason they are struggling.

Probably 3/4 of the post you get is "delivered" by one of the private mail companies.... i.e. they collect it pre-sorted in sacks and courier it to the royal mail sorting office who then do the hard work... carrying the letters to your door.

If roayl mail were allowed to charge the private mail firms the actual cost of delivering the mail - basically the cost of a first class stamp - they would be ok. In reality, Adam Crozier personally agreed with the regulators that RM would do it for about half that.

The man is a traitor who should be put to death.
