Soldering wire from trem claw?

I am doing my first pickup rewiring and guitar refinishing. I was just wondering where to solder the wire attached to the trem claw. Does it get grounded just like the green wire (humbucker) and sleeve wire do? Thanks for the help.

The wire from the trem claw just needs to be grounded.

The bridge ground wire needs to be soldered to the rest of the mechanical ground. Typically, the bottom of a pot.
