The Hampshire store will take part in the vote which will begin on December 8 and close on December 22.
The dispute centres around a number of issues including wage errors, pressure to work extra shifts and numerous health and safety issues.
Nicola Nixon, GMB Regional Organiser said: "This dispute has been brewing for some time now, with local management continuing to ignore growing concerns and an extremely stressed workforce reaching breaking point.
"Complaints were so wide and varied that a list of some 21 points of concern have been drafted to be shared with ASDA national management.
"It's beginning to look a lot un-like Christmas for Gosport ASDA staff, and perhaps this dispute may have been avoided had management invested in their staff a little more, rather than paying Michael Bublé a fortune to front their Christmas campaign."
A spokesperson from ASDA said: “We value feedback from our colleagues and have established procedures in place for them to raise any concerns they may have. The GMB has not brought any issues at the Gosport store to our attention, however, we would welcome the opportunity to meet with them and discuss any concerns they may have.”
