Members of The University and College Union will be balloted for strike action in a row over pay.
The action comes after Sunderland College announced plans to cut the salaries of more than 150 lecturers by £10,000 and downgrade 70% of its teaching workforce to inferior pay grades.
The union has accused the college of trying to deliver teaching on the cheap and using the current funding difficulties in further education as an excuse to cut staff pay.
The ballot will close on Friday 18 May.
