Filip Pertold and Štěpán Jurajda will be part of the Czech Minister of Labor and Social Affairs’ Marian Jurečka team. The group's task is to prepare a pension reform on ensuring future adequate pensions, pension system stability, and long-term financial sustainability.

"In the Government's Program Statement, we have committed ourselves to a pension reform. For the system to be sustainable in the long term, we need to support families and the flexibility of work and resolve the issue of pensions for workers in strenuous professions," said Minister Marian Jurečka.
