High pitched squeal noise coming from passanger rear tire when driving down road

I have a 2008 G6 base model and it has 45000 miles on it. It has brand new tires, rotors and brakes on all four. After 6 month I had to replace the back brakes again. We thought replacing the brakes would fix the problem but it did not. I was going 60MPh down interstate and you could hear a loud squeal noise coming from the tire. Hit the brakes a little bit and it goes away. When you jack up the car and freely spin the tire, you can hear a low squeal. The dealer says that it is the brake backing plate rubbing up against the rotor causing the squeal. New brakes did not fix the problem. Anyone have any idea what it might be.

were the calipers completely depressed prior to installing the new pads?

Yes and it was making the squealing noise even before the brakes were replaced. It makes the noise in any weather condition as well. When you turn the car slighly it will get lower or go away.
