It may well share similar roots. Anything with ‘workingmen’ in the title is likely to come from a progressive or radical background e.g. the Workingmen’s Institute at New Harmony in the 1840s, the Workingman’s Educational Society in Chicago in the 1880s, and there were some direct colleges modeled on the London Workingmen’s College.
