If someone breaches a contract, the usual remedy would be to put you in the place you would have been had the other party followed through with their end of the bargain.
If you have not yet performed your part of the contract, then the other party's breach would allow you to get out of the contract.
There are times where a judge could step in when the parties have not included a term that they clearly intended but those situations are rare.
There is never a legal right to renegotiate your contract. You might have leverage to convince the employer to agree to a new contract or new terms if they have breached, but you cannot force them to agree to new terms.
An attorney would have to review the contract to give you a more detailed opinion.

You could try to renegotiate your contract though there is no "right" to that. Have an employment law attorney help you consider your options.
