The North’s three main teaching unions are to ballot their members on strike action.
The INTO, UTU and ATL are to ask their members to vote early next month.
The INTO leadership said it was seeking a mandate from its 7,000 members for a series of strikes.
Members of the NASUWT union in Belfast and Newtownabbey schools are due stage a one-day strike tomorrow.
In October, all five main teaching unions rejected an offer which saw their pay frozen in 2015/16 and a rise of one per cent in 2016/17.
The NASUWT had previously announced its members elsewhere in Northern Ireland would stage a series of further one-day strikes in January and February next.
