Agency asks for rate cut

Hi all
My agent has asked me to consider a pay cut of 5% (contractor) as the client company is struggling with strong CHF until CHF is slightly weaker again and has assured me this is done for all contractors in company. When I asked him that I must come back from holiday to think about it (on holiday now) he threatened me with the 'alternative' which is presumably contract termination. Is he bluffing like most agents and if he terminates my contract is he not losing his pay cut too and losing his reputation (if such things exist for agents) with client company? He asked me to sign the new contract at the airport when I come back..
