FMLA LWOP meant reduction in performance award

I am a federal government employee who invoked FMLA rights to care for terminally ill mother. I was given only 80% of a performance bonus because of my LWOP for FMLA. I have a formal grievance being instituted by the AFGE (union) but since no posters are in the building and they appear ignorant to the rights of the act, I would like to take more action. What can I do and where do I go to do it?

You can try the US dept of Labor. They administer the FMLA and accept complaints concerning it. In Winston-Salem, you have a fine law firm that practices employment law -- Elliott, Pishko, Gelbin & Morgan. I know several of the partners at this firm. I expect them to charge for a consultation though.
