ABSTRACT
This article discusses the thesis which focuses on a relationship between religious nonconformity and trade union leadership by examining the life and works of W. T. Miller. The study looks into the two organizations with which Miller was involved during his life. One was the British Protestant religious sect, the Churches of Christ and the Second World War. The other was the colliery deputies' trade union from its formation. It attempts to understand the connection between Miller's religious ethic and his trade union leadership style.
