Teachers in Jersey have voted to strike, if necessary, in response to the pay settlement imposed by the government.
More than 97% of National Education Union (NEU) members who voted, chose to take action.
The turnout for the ballot was 59.2%.
A union spokesperson says the result reflects the pressure that teachers are feeling due to the public sector pay dispute.
It follows strikes by Customs and Immigration officers, teaching assistants and other civil servants this week.
The States of Jersey says "the facts of the situation hasn't changed", their pay deal is final and there is no more money for civil servants.
The NEU says it envisages the strikes to "roll" from school to school but final details are yet to be decided.
