Hmm, this is not really a svn-question?!

How about putting both users in the same group "workers" and either...

a. You set your umask so files are created with right permissions or
b. You make a script running e.g.
   chmod -R 775 /path/to/my/workingcopy
   chown -R :workers /path/to/my/workingcopy

and run it when logging out?

On linux there's also the sg-command so you at login could execute

sg workers

ensuring that the files are created with the right group from the start.

There's also the find-command, allowing you to treat files on basis of a
number of parameters, e.g. ownership and permissions.

Some combination should do the trick.

Hope it helps!
