The owner of several Nova Scotia P3 schools is trying to turn a bigger profit by overriding a CUPE collective agreement and assuming direct control of maintenance and custodial work.

P3 school owner Ashford Investments wants to take over the work from the Strait Regional School Board, leaving CUPE 955 members out of a job. The corporations plans show that the privateers promises to respect collective agreements are short-lived, with many corporations taking the first chance they get to gut CUPE agreements. CUPE is fighting the plan, calling for the collective agreement to be respected.
