A national strike ballot of UCU union members over pay was set to start on Friday of this week.
The ballot involves union members in further education colleges. The union is recommending workers vote yes.
It is demanding a rise of 3 percent or £1,040, whichever is greater, for all further education lecturers.
Lecturers should organise to get the biggest possible turnout in the ballot and a strong yes vote. The ballot ends on 19 December.
