WES Rehabs 10,000 Sq. Foot Headquarters


Join the St. Louis Workers’ Education Society as we continue rehabbing our historic building and you political home!

Built in 1913, WES’s headquarters has been a part of the brick and mortar of the St. Louis labor movement since at least the 1960’s, when the Operating Engineers’ International Union bought the property. And over the past two years – since WES purchased the property – 2929 S. Jefferson has become a hub of progressive activity.

Once a month, we gather with WES community members and volunteers to work on the building. We are working on putting the finishing touches on our community-labor library and conference room, and will soon start some new projects.

This is a great way to learn skills from talented professionals – union painters and carpenters.

If you’ve ever been to one of our events, potlucks or concerts, or if you appreciate our work and thought ‘how can I help?’ This is it! Join us for the next one. Check out our events page on our Facebook group to see when the next one is scheduled.

Lunch is always provided!

WES isn’t just a building. It’s a family. And it is humbling to know that so many of you consider WES your political home!
