Please clarify why you want to know this ?
It looks like an academic question and part of ones curriculum.
If it is so, I would suggest you should not try to "outsource" it to others and make them work for you; it does not result in any learning to you.
Warm regards.

I am final year student of MBA and for my last semester I am having subject on employee relations. I just wanted to know about these three views as they are part of the subject. Thank you

The term 'Marxist' is a political matter and relates to Communism. Marxism is based on the theories and views of Karl Marx & Lenin. It will be more better if you search the answers of terms as mentioned in your remarks as above from the books of Political Science.

It sounds more like a question related to social sciences and political sciences; while I can see some relations to OB (Organisational Behavior). I wonder why you are posting it here. In the time it takes to post and wait for replies, you could have gooogled it and found the relevant information.

Please go through the below mentioned web id for info. regarding the theories of industrial relations

Reference: What Are the Different Theories of Industrial Relations? | eHow

Unitarist Theory

The unitarist theory of industrial relations emphasizes the co-dependency of employers and employees. To a unitarist, an organization is an integrated, friendly and collaborative whole. Unitarists do not favor employee unions. They believe that loyalty to such an organization would detract from employee loyalty to a company (disrupting the bond between employer and employees).

Marxist Theory

The Marxist theory of industrial relations claims that capitalism breeds corruption and greed, leaving the employee to suffer while corporations rake in profits. Marxists claim that institutions would be far better employers if run as state organizations, while compensation would be standardized to promote a co-operative, non-competitive work environment.

Radical Theory

Not to be confused with Marxist theory, radical theory sees industrial relations as a necessary (but not ideal) result of employees protecting themselves from powerful big-business. Radicals believe that profit-hungry corporations have no regard (aside from legal obligations) for their employees, and are willing to profit off of them at any available opportunity.

Pluralist Theory

Pluralist theory emphasizes the representative function of management and trade unions, and it reinforces the value (and legitimacy) of collective bargaining. Pluralists recognize organizations within management and within unions as legitimate. They believe that management's primary function is to coordinate, communicate and persuade, rather than control or demand.
