As a Grubhub Delivery Driver, it’s essential to have multiple options to secure work and income. In the recent video, the driver mentioned that he was deactivated by GrubHub for violating the delivery partner agreement. This event highlights the importance of not relying on a single platform for income.

The driver shared that he had been signed up for GrubHub for two years and noticed a significant increase in the size of orders when he first started. However, over the past few months, the orders on GrubHub became as bad as the ones on UberEats and DoorDash. Therefore, the driver started cherry-picking orders and working with multiple apps to maximize his earnings.

Despite working with multiple platforms, the driver was still deactivated by GrubHub. The driver received a termination notice for violating the delivery partner agreement. Upon checking his email, he found out that the notice was sent a week ago.

The termination notice stated that the driver’s service falls below the required standard in the region. This behavior violated section four of the delivery partner agreement. The notice further stated that according to section 11 of the agreement, the driver would no longer be contracted to perform delivery service with GrubHub going forward. The decision was final, and the driver would not have the opportunity to appeal the termination.

This event is a clear indication of the importance of working with multiple platforms as a gig worker. Relying on a single platform can be detrimental to one’s income and job security. While GrubHub may have been the driver’s primary source of income, losing it would not mean the end of his gig work. As he mentioned, he was signed up for seven or eight other apps and would depend on them for work.

It’s also worth noting that working with multiple platforms could also mean avoiding the risk of violating the agreement with one platform. As the driver mentioned, who knows, DoorDash or UberEats could be next for violating their delivery partner agreement.

In conclusion, as a gig worker, it’s crucial to have multiple options to secure income and job security. Relying on a single platform can be detrimental, as one can be deactivated at any time for violating the agreement. It’s best to work with multiple platforms and not put all one’s eggs in one basket.
