There is no law saying that all employees in a company have to get the same paid holidays, or as many paid holidays as each other; an employer can have certain jobs or certain locations get different paid holidays (or, for that matter, vacation and sick days) than others.

A change in paid holidays doesn't require advance notice, but it is only effective from when the change is made forward. So if the holiday has already passed, your pay may not be retroactively taken away for it; but an employer could, for example, tell you on July 3rd that July 4th will not be paid.
