Teachers in pension strike vote.
The Association of Teachers and Lecturers will start balloting their members from today.
The union say UK reforms will mean all teachers and lecturers will have to pay more in contributions, work for longer and receive between 15 per cent and 30 per cent less pension.
Holyrood finance secretary John Swinney has warned that teachers, NHS staff, police and firefighters will have to pay more into their pensions unless the UK Government change their plan for increases.
ATL members in England and Wales took part in the union's first national strike on June 30.
