Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,
My name isXXXXX am a licensed attorney, and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
I've got good and bad news.
The bad news is that this wouldn't constitute racketeering, which is defined as the following: "obtaining or extorting money illegally or carrying on illegal business activities."
Since they are not attempting to extort or blackmail you and aren't involved in illegal business activities, this would not constitute racketeering. What they are doing gives rise to a number of civil causes of action against them but doesn't rise to the level of criminal activity.
The good news is that it does constitute a tort
called intentional interference with economic relations, as they are contacting your employer and attempting to have you terminated, interfering with your economic relationship with your employer and your income.
You definitely have a great case for intentional interference with economic relations if they plan on protesting against you. On top of that, if they make any false statements about you, you could also sue them for defamation
for causing damage to your reputation (which they definitely seem to have done).
JustAnswer experts cannot provide you with specific attorney recommendations, but I can give you a few websites as starting points, which are:
