Medical secretaries and receptionists are among those at a hospital trust in West Yorkshire who will go on strike on 1 November, according to a union.
Unison members were balloted after 74 employees were sent redundancy letters.
The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs hospitals in Wakefield, Dewsbury and Pontefract, has to save £24m by April.
The trust said it would put plans in place to ensure patient care is not compromised during strike action.
Unison said 88% of the administrative and clerical staff balloted voted in favour of strike action and 96% voted in favour of action short of a strike.
