Staff at a Birmingham diesel engine pump and fan manufacturer are set to go on strike after the breakdown of pay talks.
The GMB union at Concentric Pumps, Gravelly Park, said members have voted for a one day stoppage on Friday and next Friday. They have also voted to impose a continuous overtime ban.
Ian Dugan, head of the firm's parent company, said he was disappointed at the decision. He said it was taken at a time when the business was fighting to keep jobs in the face of competition from India and China
The GMB said negotiations involving itself, Amicus and T&G had broken down when the company "insisted staff should take a 2.8 per cent pay increase".
The GMB say the company has had the best financial results for three years.
A GMB spokesman said members had voted to take industrial action by an " overwhelming majority in excess of 90 per cent".
But Mr Dugan, chief executive of the Gravelly Park firm's parent company, Concentric, said the the offer on the table would not be increased.
