Unity does not directly address the resurrection of Jesus.
The mindset of Unity seems to be that it's not important whether Jesus physically resurrected or not. Just as a lot of Christians don't really care whether Jesus spoke of an actual beggar named Lazarus or simply made up a parable, Unity regards Jesus' victory over death as an example for us and having no other benefit, therefore they don't care about the details.
A Unity minister says:
He does mention that Charles Fillmore, considered the founder of Unity, almost certainly did believe in Jesus' literal resurrection. The minister claims "Jesus death did not save us from our sin but pointed the way to the truth."
