Staff at the University of Sussex have voted for strike action in a dispute over planned job cuts.
A total of 76% of those balloted supported a strike if the university goes ahead with plans to shed 115 teaching and support staff jobs.
The University and College Union (UCU) said the 80.9% turnout was the highest the union had ever had in a ballot.
A meeting of the university senate due to take place later has now been postponed until 17 March.
The postponement means the university council, which had been due to meet on 15 March to decide whether to go ahead with the cuts, will now make the final decision on 26 March.
UCU general secretary Sally Hunt said: "Industrial action is always a last resort but the bottom line is that serious job losses will impact massively across the University of Sussex and result in a far worse experience for students."
