two componets being disconnect after simulation

Hi all,

I have a model set up for simulation against the vertical force exerted on a flat surface. As far as I understand, if I keep the default global contact for the model, the entire model will be bonded on all the connections. Except for this, there are no more contacts being set up. However, the simulation result shows a disconnection (circled in red in jpg) between the back wall and the bottom floor once the "deformed result" is turned on. This is not right as the two components should move together if displacement presents.

Do I need to apply some contact set between these two components? I have attached the model for reference.

Thanks for the help in advance.
