Currently Delivery_Specs is having permission for user (Domain)  rwx and for Group (Users) rwx for others nothing is permitted.

If the user Joker is in Users group then it is having the proper permission.
Please place the output of

groups <user name>

If you can change the owenership of this directory then just execute the below given command.

chown -R joker:Users Delivery_Specs

Owner & group has read write and access permissions .
other users have no access


add the user to a group that already has rwx permissions
users don't have rwx permissions, files and directories do.
