I guess the problem is that you desire a "The Lock-Modify-Unlock
Solution"? That is discussed fairly well at

Especially read, "When Locking is Necessary", because you can still
enable the Locking if it is really needed. But from what you say,
your guys are used to it but don't need it and they should stop the
locking nonsense and start collaborating, instead.

What confuses me is that you imply that you are already locking, yet
you say the guy might "update a file and it overwrite to repository
version". How is that possible if the file were correctly locked? How
did you lock it?

The update merging is not an issue if you are using the
Lock-Modify-Unlock solution.
