Making Tag on a branch-question

I have a question regarding tags made on branches.
I have branched our tree with the branch name 2.0.
After some days,I wanted to make a tag on the branch
for QA testing purpose.I checked out from the branch
and then tagged it from that working directory with 
cvs tag -r 'tag_on_branch_name' modulename
Is this the correct procedure?
One developer insists that when he checked out from
the branch,he doesn't get the latest files from that
branch and has to do a 
cvs update -r tag_on_branch_name
to get the latest files.As a result,he cannot commit
because of the sticky tag.
I told him that he should get the latest files from
the branch by checking out from the branch regardless
of the tag.Isn't this correct?
Pls clarify.
Thanks a lot,
Jeeva Sarma
