This chapter provides an in-depth analysis of the ‘frames of reference’ in the academic field of industrial relations. In doing so, it explores notions of interests within the employment relationship and identifies different analytical approaches to the world of work that are informed by pluralist, unitary and radical frameworks. The chapter charts the movement of more unitary frames of reference into human resource management and management studies while discussing the consolidation of more critical and radical framing within industrial relations itself.
