Not knowing if the parts are original or who's been working on it, I can only say this -

Usually, there's a couple of screws in the metal base of the switch, sort of lined up with hot wire connections. Those are for ground wires.

You might have a couple to threaded holes with no screws, though...

Is there a ground wire coming from the motor cable? If that goes to a screw, you can connect the power cable ground there.

But yes, the ground definitely should be connected.
