The GMB union said 2,000 of its members at Cadent will be balloted from March 25 to April 8.
If workers vote to take action, a strike could take place from April 22, said the GMB.
The ballot comes after workers rejected a 4% pay offer, which the union said amounts to a “massive” real-terms pay cut because of the RPI inflation rate of 7.8%.
Cadent Gas maintains the gas network to homes and businesses throughout the North West, East and West Midlands, East Anglia and north London.
GMB national officer Gary Carter said: “What Cadent is offering amounts to a big real-terms pay cut. There is a cost-of-living crisis and inflation is rocketing.
“Cadent is struggling to recruit because it doesn’t pay enough and its workforce is going elsewhere to better-paid jobs.”
