What's the next step?

I've been working on a contract (without benefits) with a certain company doing POS and Back Office Technical Support for about 10 months now. I'm one of 2 remaining from the original class that brought the contract pilot to a full-on 3 year contract. In the last 3 to 4 months I've been passed over on at least 2 separate promotion opportunities, though I've been a model employee. Since our office moved increasing my round trip plus toll now, adding on an additional $188.00 a month in work alone related travel expenses, and our workload and responsibilities have almost quadrupled, I finally decided it's time to move-on, hopefully to another assignment with my current contract agency. I wrote a rather detailed letter to my contact with my agency, sent it via email got a "read receipt" within about 10 minutes, and now it's been 3.5 days without any kind of follow-up from my contract agency. No call, no reply email, nothing being said at work, total silence. It's almost like I never sent anything at all. So my question is: Should I make a follow-up call or email to the contract agency, or should I just leave them alone and continue on with my private job search? Any comments or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

hmmmm...it seems odd that they don't acknowledge your great work with that company. I think that you should work somewhere where your hard work is recognized. You are not getting credit where it is due. Move on and find a company that appreciates you. That company won't be around very long if they don't value their employees.
