The problem most probably that they aren't grounded at all, they just might be grounded badly. Keep in mind that you will never get single coils perfectly quiet.

Chances are that the wire going from the back of the volume pot to the trem claw has come loose, or the connection is messed up. That;'s just a simple wiring job, probably only envolving removing 2-6 screws.

Not necessarily though. My guitar had some horrible grounding issues so I took my guitar back to the place I bought it from (this was when I was a n00b, I thought my guitar was broken). Their tech went over it repeatedly, till they finally told me that the problems were caused by their shitty pickups, pots and wiring schemes.
