Glover Park Group has picked up Grubhub for DC representation of labor and issues related to delivery network companies.

The food delivery service this month guaranteed minimum earnings and enhanced benefits for its California drivers following approval of the state’s Protect App-Based Drivers and Services Act.

Grubhub, which is in the process of being acquired by Netherlands-based Just East Takeaway in a $7B deal, posted a 53 percent surge in second-quarter earnings to $494M sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic. It lost $9.2M compared to a $1M year-ago profit.

Managing directors Susan Brophy, Paul Poteet, and Gregg Rothschild, along with senior VP Megan Moore handle Grubhub.

Glover Park Group will merge with Finsbury and Hering Schuppener to form Finsbury Glover Hering in early 2021.
