If it's 10% of the sales you make, as opposed to 10% of the sales the company makes, then I can't see how he could change it. Say your hours have gone down by 50%; then your likely sales will have gone down by 50% as well. So you'll already be getting 10% of a reduced rate, and there's no justification for reducing it further.

It's not changing your job role but would be changing your terms and conditions, which he'd have to do in writing with some warning etc (bear in mind I'm no expert or anything). There are all sorts of safeguards in place so employers can't randomly decide to reduce holidays etc without consultation, so I'm sure you'd be protected.

What does your contract say? Under what conditions can your commission structure be renegotiated?
