Justin Im pretty sure he is legit. Looks like they are just trying to do what was asked of them by many members and having a member who will inform people on their bindings without getting into internet fights.

Sorry but that is still outsourcing. The company was founded and is operated in Seattle, WA, and relying on other countries to provide a means of production is still "outsourcing" by definition.
Anyway, how do I, and other users here know if your legit? -There was apparently an incident involving a C3 representative, who promoted contest awarding whoever "hijacks" the most forums here with a pair of Union bindings. I'm not sure exactly what happened, but if you search it you can find it quite easily.

jdang307 So you are from Union?

I've written you guys off because of the antics of your guy Nose Dramous (sp).

But if you're going to stick around and be cool and address concerns, that's cool, I can respect that.

First I saw Union's How to Set Up Your Union Bindings videoo on YouTube, and the Union guy was just being an absolute douche. He had a sort of 'shut up, Union is the only good binding brand you idiot' tone and just gave me bad vibes. He actually reminded me of a highschool bully
Second thing is on their site, it says "everything in-house... with no outsourcing". I get the box... big black bold text reads: DESIGNED IN ITALY. MADE IN CHINA. Yeah, no outsourcing my a**!
I then try contacting them on their site but when I click 'send' a box appears that says something like "We don't like robots. Fill out the verification box." But of course there's no freaking image with the verification text!
Sure- my Union bindings perform flawlessly, look cool, haven't had any problems and should last a lifetime. But honestly I'd feel happier with bindings with a 1 year warranty, knowing that the guys who made them are NICE, HAPPY, SOCIAL people who respect their customers more than, well, their bindings! (what else?)
Oh well, I'm happy with mine anyway. As long as they really don't break, they're still awesome.

Lol no no make love not war!!! Really though I stopped watching Sesame Street when I was a kid, but the Muppet show is one of those shows that translates well into adulthood. It's hilarious to go back at watch some of the episodes with the guests that were big at the time, like Elton John with his big ass glasses! Classic stuff...
